Description

Pass the Sputnik Boulder like you are going up to the Lower Satellites. When you get to the fork, instead of going left up the climbers trail next to the huge wall known as The Wave, go up the right fork of the trail to the base of The Second Flatiron.

Where the trail meets the base of the Second Flatiron, a cube-like boulder reminiscent of a Borg Cube on Star Trek is on your left. Go left up a steep trail parallelling the Second Flatiron and this problem is on the east face of the very next boulder and starts right off the trail. Start at head height between two streams of moss clods using two crimpers, reach high for the lip and pull over.

Only worth bothering with if your like me and you go up to the Satellites and try and do 50 problems in a 3 hours.
