Description Suggest change

'Turning Point' lies on top of the BBC (Best of Boulder County) boulder in the Satellites. The BBC is the enormous flat-topped boulder that lies on the right side of the trail as you're going up. Turning Point is hard to miss- it's the obvious problem that starts low on the severely overhanging boulder on the top of the BBC.Start with the right hand on the first good sloper/pinch on the face and left on the crimp just above the undercling (please don't start on the undercling because it's flexing and is very liable to break). Move your hands out onto the slopers on the face. Use some sneaky foot-beta and hand sequences to get to the arete, bump out left, then fire for the top! This is truly one of the greatest boulder problems in the area, and is not to be missed. The rock is flawless, and the problem is one of the most aesthetic anywhere.

Protection Suggest change

At least 1 crashpad is recommended here. Another one or two might be nice to cover up the huge crack below the last part of the problem.
