  • Description 

    Pass the Sputnik Boulder like you are going up to the main area for the Lower Satellites and the Third Flatiron. Do some big S-turns 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 Mothership). Walk around the north face of The Mothership to the northwest corner, then turn right (downhill) and Coefficient of Friction ascends the short but obvious west face just down to the right maybe 20 feet away. Start on obvious holds at head height and, probably using a gaston, rock onto a slopey foothold that has a tendency to spit you off until you figure out how to hold the holds and what you are actually going to grab next. Once you latch and hold the next hold, topping out is super easy.


    a pad will do you
