Description 

When you get to the Sputnik Boulder, the first boulder considered to be part of The Satellites, head into the trees directly to the west, instead of going south up the trail. A short bulging boulder will appear right in front of you with a sds problem called Spacelab.

Walk around this to the right and go 30 more feet until you can look down to the right and see a 18 foot 80 degree slab that starts down in a little alcove. The problem faces west and presents no real difficulties unless the its raining or the humidity is high and the scattered moss creates slippery conditions.

Very easy highballing.

Protection 

A crashpad might help if you cratered.
