Description 

This route is well worth a little scrambling and bouldering to get to the platform at the start of the climb. To find the route, just locate the huge roof system on the right side of Hassler's Hatbox formation. Once you reach the starting platform....

P1. Follow the crack system to the alcove under the roof, and belay from here.

P2. Traverse under the roof and belay from chains.

This route is a lot of fun with airy and exposed moves across the entire traverse. You may even get applause from the people picnicking far below.

Protection 

Standard rack. Bring a 60m rope for the rappel.

The entire route probably uses 120 - 140 ft. of rope, so breaking it into two pitches would be a bit of a hassle. Plenty of sling-age on the dihedral and right at the corner before moving into the traverse keep rope drag totally manageable.
