The Satellite Boulder

West Yorkshire Gritstone

The Satellite Boulder is aptly named – it may as well have dropped from space after being launched into orbit from Switzerland. It is a gobsmackingly impressive piece of stone that has yielded some instant classics at a spread of grades, though most climbs are at the harder end of the spectrum.
