Description Suggest change

Pass the Sputnik Boulder like you are going up to the Lower Satellites. Do a big S-turn past some other boulders and you will come to a fork in the trail. Go left towards the main Satellites area and the huge wall immediately on your left is The Wave.

What seems like the best way to do this problem is to start on the far left at the crack and traverse to the right - staying low the whole time - 60 feet or so to good holds on the southwest corner. A good warm up or warm down on mostly small holds and every bit as good as the Tree Slab Traverse on Flagstaff.
