[Hide Comment] FA, probably Gerry Roach. Gerry told me that back in the '70s when approaching another climb, he would climb this as a "warm up". This makes sense because it bypasses a switchback on the trail. May 6, 2009

[Hide Comment] New to Mountain Project and to bouldering, this was a very fun problem for me (I know it is a warm-up for most everyone else around here). Once I develop some climbing skills, this will be a warm-up for me too. I enjoyed spooking the hikers after sending. ;) May 5, 2012

[Hide Comment] Great beginner introduction to the Satellites. Semi-uneven landing, so not as ideal as Sputnik One or 1.5 or Left, although this is the tallest problem on this boulder. Currently, the large dead tree is positioned so the hiking trail goes directly in the landing zone of this, so be considerate and watch for hikers. Mar 11, 2016
