Attitude Adjuster

In 2000, Ghislain Losier did the first ascent of El Chalupa V6 on the Satellite boulder. He gave it a V5, but I'm pretty sure El Chalupa is Spanish for sand bag. To put things in perspective, this is the same year he gave Stars Attack V6 and Dancing to the New Bolero V8. Don't watch the video, it's a blurry, grunty, shaky mess, but it was such a struggle it'll have to do.

The crimpy slab rite of passage Crystal Light V7 was a skin friendly warm-up by comparison. We aren't even going to talk about the unbridled savagery that is the unrepeated Bring The Pain V8 on the end of this boulder. I still have nightmares.

Rounding out the Sattelite boulder, in stark contrast to all of these legendary Losier sandbags, is the ultra soft and unfortunately named Top 6 @ 6 V5 which is neither V6 nor very good.
