Description

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.

Low Frequency ascends the left side of The Wave's massive west face a few feet right of an obvious low angle crack that goes to the top. Go up the slab to a couple holds below the bulging topout and pull up and over.

Being this is right off the trail, I think it's worth dropping the pads down for a try. I thought the movement to get in position to grab the top rail was interesting. Jul 19, 2009
