  • Description 

    Hike into the Lower Satellites. When the A-7 Boulder (with its prominent V1 hand traverse problem) is on your left, the enormous BBC complex is on your right.

    The Mailslot begins from a sds down to the right from Campus Corner on the west side of the BBC. Just left of a tree, sit down and using a good hold on the lip and a marginal heel-hook pull like hell for the obvious "mailslot" hold up on the north face of the Turning Point Boulder. Get your feet underneath you and pull up and over.

    If this problem has another name or grade that is in common usage, leave a comment and I will submit a correction.

    This one is fine to do alone even with 1 medium pad. I fell off the big move a lot until I figured out the beta. From there, the topout isn't too bad.
