Description

Hike into the Lower Satellites. When the A-7 Boulder (with its prominent V1 hand traverse problem) is on your left, the enormous BBC complex is on your right.

Re-Entry Burn ascends a line up the west face of the BBC about 10 or 12 feet right of Balance in Nature. Look for the obvious line of holds with chalk on them and you are there. Start low on a RH sidepull and LH undercling and pull yourself onto small but OK footholds. The problem is finding the right sequence up the sharp edges, getting a foot up onto any of a number of miserable footholds and going for the top. Very clutch!

If this one doesn't hurt, you've got leather hands and no nerve endings. As for the grade, Benningfield called it V5 in CO Bouldering. Almost everyopne I know thinks it's quite a bit harder. We'll go with V6 for now.

Protection

A crashpad and a spotter are nice because of the uneven landing.

Short and with only two difficult moves it's not to be underestimated. I voted on V6 for difficulty, but after climbing the line around 9 times I am thinking maybe not so much V6. Anyway if your at the B.B.C. you should give it a run. Not as sharp to me as some report. All the rock at the Satellites are kinda tough on the hand. That being said, it's worthy of some attention.
