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

Sputnik One starts a few feet right of the crack below a yellowish-green band. However, don't bail out left to finish. Go up and right toward another yellowish-green band, a higher top-out and a satisfying finish.


A crashpad.

Love the balance - slab problems. This one is great for an inner ear warm-up.
