  • Description 

    An obvious line that was completely covered with lichen and had several holds that broke easily the first time I got on it. Maybe someone climbed it before me, but they made no effort to clean or actually use any of the holds.

    Pass the Sputnik Boulder like you are going up to the Lower Satellites. Instead of going left up the 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.

    Assimilation arete ascends the thin northwest arete starting right next to the Second Flatiron.


    a crashpad, maybe two

    I don't think anyone has been on this in a while. Quite a bit of lichen.
