  • Description 

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

    Sputnik Two starts on the right side of the wall, almost under the large dead tree leaning up against the top. Climb straight to the top without moving right to bigger edges out right.

    Protection 

    A crashpad.

    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.

    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. ;)

    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.
