Description 

Pass the Sputnik Boulder like you are going up to the Lower Satellites. When you get to the fork in the trail, 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 just before the Borg Cube up a steep social trail parallelling the Second Flatiron, passing Nanoprobe V5 and the next boulder which is home to Gully Diver V5/6 sds. About 10 yards later, cut left onto a shelf that has a nice wall looming over it.

Witch Hunt climbs the short overhanging seams left of Trial By Fire (which starts off the obvious large detached flake and similarly ascends seams). Begin from a dirt burglar sds on flakes and climb out the short overhang.

Although not worth the hike by itself, a good afternoon circuit would be to try Nanoprobe ****, Gully Diver ***, Trial By Fire *** and Witch Hunt which are all within 40 yards of one another, all about the same difficulty, but still a short distance away from the normal scene at the main area. Have fun!
