Description

Hike into the Lower Satellites to the Best of Boulder County (BBC) Boulder. On the back (west) side of the BBC are a number of smaller boulders opposite the problems on the BBC.

Smooth Ride begins from a sit-down start in a slot between some bushes and ascends decent edges up a short and slightly overhanging face. A long reach gains a grim edge, just short of the slopey top. Either lockoff and "smooth it" or bump to the top and pull over. It goes both ways. Cool, but in typical Satellites fashion, too short for my taste.

Protection

a couple pads down in the slot are nice
