DescriptionPass 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. Pass The Wave on your left and the Stardust Boulder (with the classic Aerogel) on your right.
Just after the Stardust Boulder, turn right into the talus toward what looks like (and is) an immense boulder. The Northeast Corner is the first thing you will come to and tops out around 16 feet. After a couple easy slab moves up the corner, you will encounter a long reach move to the slopey lip. Move around the corner a couple feet to the left to better hand holds, throw your right foot over the top and rock up and over. Fun as part of an easier circuit of problems, if you don't mind the air under your feet.
