Unshaven Slab is the dirty slab on the north side of the boulder. The problem begins low and right, at the base of the slab.

The first handholds are about chest level. Tick tack your feet up dirty holds on your eventual way up left. Follow the right headed large dirty crack and continue up to the top.

Did I mention it's dirty?

Walk-off to the right, west side of the boulder.


Hike into main area of the Lower Satellites by following the signs to the Third Flatiron. Fifty yards after walking between the A-7 and BBC Boulders, look up to your right off the trail for a tall boulder. The problem is located on the north hidden side of the boulder. Unlike so many other problems in the Satellites, this one is not a lowball.

Unshaven Slab is the slab on the north side of the boulder with the obvious V1 Dark Side of The Moon on the south side.


Crashpad and a spotter. There is an uneven landing, but if you have two pads, you're completely covered.

It is very dirty even after my cleaning session, so be careful where you step. You may not be able to trust it.
