BETA PHOTO: Alex points the way down the Hatch (note cairn)


This is a walk-off descent route from the top. It does not require gear or rope. There are no 4th class exposed rock sections as in Uberfall Descent, and there is no cliff to accidentally fall off. It's mostly a steep trail. Remember to clip approach shoes.


Walking along the top, the bare, flat rock breaks into a small wooded area marked by a cairn on the South. The top of Casa Emilio can be found at the North edge of this wooded area. The descent route is the trail to the South.


No gear is needed.

I love this ascent as an under/over cliff run/hike. Never used it to walk off though

Unless we were off-route, there are 3 short sections of 4th class downclimbing. While not exposed, they are awkward especially if you are carrying a rope or rack. The rest was steep hiking that could be slippery in rock shoes.

If leaves are on the ground, and rain has recently fallen, you will find a fast descent to the bottom of the hatch. Tread thoughtfully.
