Description 

Approach the Lower Satellites. As you pass the huge wall known as The Wave on the left, an obvious arete problem will be right in front of you on the trail.

Ascend the sloping arete and arching ridge to the top and pull over. Although it was covered in lichen the first time I got on it, particularly up high, others certainly had touched the first couple holds and may have climbed it. If so, I will retract the FA claim and rename it accordingly.

Peace.

A crashpad.

There is still a ton of lichen as of today, I'll most likely try to clean it off, at least a little. This was a really cool and fun problem but needs cleaned badly. It was too easy to slip on what would normally be a solid foot.
