Comments: We tried to give that shaky block a shove with no luck. It is somewhat jammed in with vegetation.

Comments: Great route up top. We stayed a bit right at start to get out hearts pumping with a triple lieback straight up on pitch one before trending left. We tried the corner left of the last pitch described here, with no avail. Does anyone know if it tops out nicely?
We agreed with described pitch ratings.

Comments: The bolt on the last pitch sits in the middle of and protects the line of patina that goes straight through the roof above the question mark.

Comments: Seems like there is some confusion between this route and No Satisfaction. I have added that route to help alleviate further confusion.

Comments: Great beauty route, only roped one pitch, climbed side by side and testing rocks seemed safest for us. The route is missing a pair of underwear, could someone please replace it?

Approach from the top was nicer especially if you like scree.

Comments: This is a great climb. For a little more sustained climbing try the arete variation heading up just past the unesolds needle and then up a steep dihedral to finish. Made this work in 2 long simulclimb pitches and the dihedral at the end was beautiful with monster steep 4" ledges.

Comments: Not nearly as featureless as stated here. Pro is rare and often sketchy. I recommend free solo on this one. The game trails into broads fork go through beautiful open forest.
