Description 

Approach the Lower Satellites. The first wall you come to on your left is the Sputnik Boulder.

Sputnik Left starts low in the conspicuous crack that splits the modules of the Sputnik Boulder. Reach left to a small crimp or two, get a good foot, reach/swing/deadpoint for the top and pull over.

If you can jam, there's no way this is V2.

Agreed, it seems the V2 must be a contrived sequence. How do I know? Cause I am a terrible boulderer and indeed, I can do this one. Seems a couple of jams/side pulls on the crack allow you to move your feet up to some good pebbles to the right of the crack, then a move to the top to the left of the crack...easy cheesy.

Glad to be back home in Colorado - lunch "hour" bouldering is where it's at!

I concur, Sputnik One was definitely more difficult.
