  • Description 

    This is a nice lowball problem. Traverse left from a sds on slopers. Gain the left side of the arete and up the buldge. It has a hard topout. It is a good problem!


    This is the first problem that you will encounter after Hailey's Comet arete. It is very well chalked, you can't miss it.


    Two pads.

    Misha ... isn't this one in Benningfield's CO Bouldering I? I for one would love to see more Upper Satellites stuff on here. I have one or two problems I could add from up there, but I will need to hike up there before I do.

    This problem is called Yo Adrian! (Notice the "Rocky" references.. before they were known as the Upper Satellites, we were calling these the Rocky Balboas.) PB's book got the info wrong on a few of these problems and neglected to list a lot. I did the FA and thought it was V6. I repeated it the other day and still stand by the 6 grade... hard 6. THAT'S WITHOUT USING THE BOULDER TO THE LEFT DURNG THE TOPOUT.

    Tough topout without using the boulder to the left. Beached whales don't only appear at the shore.
