Description 

Hike into the Lower Satellites. When the A-7 Boulder is up to the left and the BBC is up on the right, this problem will be on your right just off the trail.

Zero G starts low on the right and climbs up and left to the top, using a variety of handholds and trickery. Benningfields guide does not mention a sds, but do it with the sds and the problem is closer to - if not actually - V5.

An easier problem, called Across, V0, in this database, starts off the huge edge on the left and goes to the top.

Protection 

A crashpad.

My feeling was that this is a good problem done as follows: Start matched on the jug on the right, traverse left and around the corner to the large rail of "Across", then top out.

Deserves more than 2 stars, I think.

This is a hard one to grade. I couldn't get anywhere at all on it until one day when I put it together quickly. If you can hold onto the slopers, then it's not that hard, but it takes a fair bit of body position and strength to hold on. I voted easy V5?

It's a totally fun one to work out though and should be a great part of a circuit once the moves are dialed.

Didn't flash but did it in a couple tries. Pretty fun, although not a classic. Good warmup once you know the moves. V5 feels about right.
