Pass the Sputnik Boulder like you are going up to the main area for the Lower Satellites and the Third Flatiron. Do a big S-turn past some other boulders and you will come to a fork in the trail. Go left towards the main Satellites area and the huge wall immediately on your left is The Wave.

The southwest corner is prominent and overhanging on its south side. Catching Waves goes to the top on the south side of the arete. [Climb the south and overhanging side of the arete from the good edge.] Start low on obvious incut edges on the southwest corner. Slap up the rounded corner until you find a place you can hold on and go with your right to the obvious edge just below the lip. The top-out moves are fairly tame after you've overcome the burlyness below. Pretty fun

Benningfield mentions this problem in Colorado Bouldering Vol. I, but gives no details including the name, grade or FA info. Although I've given it a name here (which goes along with the wall its on) so that its not just another unknown or unnamed problem, if anyone knows the real name, feel free to leave a comment and I will submit a correction.



A crashpad, maybe a spotter.
