  • Description 

    Pass the Sputnik Boulder like you are going up to the Lower Satellites. Instead of going left up the trail next to the huge wall known as The Wave, turn up the right fork of the trail.

    After 30 feet a small (maybe 8 feet high) pinnacle emerges from the ground on the left side of the trail.

    From a sds in the middle of the trail, begin from a bearhug position. Force yourself to work up small sharp crimps to the left, rather than pulling around the corner and climbing Blastoff Right on much bigger holds. Way harder than it looks, tweaky and not very fun.
