Description 

Pass the Sputnik Boulder like you are going up to the Lower Satellites. When you get to the fork, instead of going left up the climbers trail next to the huge wall known as The Wave, go up the right fork of the trail to the base of The Second Flatiron.

Where the trail meets the base of the Second Flatiron, a cube-like boulder reminiscent of a Borg Cube on Star Trek is on your left. Go left up a steep trail parallelling the Second Flatiron and this problem is on the southeast corner of the very next boulder and starts right off the trail. Start at shoulder height on two perfect slopers, do a couple fingery moves up to better holds and pull over.

Its a fairly short problem and the first move is the only hard one for the grade, so I can't warrant giving it more stars ... nevertheless it is fun.
