Start in the small corner/roof feature near the center of the face. Work your way up an easy crack into the alcove below the large roof. Pull the roof, then continue straight up into a shallow right facing corner and over a fun bulge. Finish up the low angle right facing corner to a 2 bolt anchor.

Very fun movement (especially for 5.8) through high quality rock. As with the other climbs at this crag, it's still somewhat dirty (really not that bad for Hatcher) and will improve with traffic.
