Description 

This route is a bomb. Current rating is 5.6R, the previous guidebook rated it 5.4

[1st pitch]
The route follows a series of flakes up and left. Traversing left from the start aways looks like the easiest route. Eventually there is a small right facing corner and a tree. Above that is the ledge for the traverse pitch of "Old Ladies Route."

[2nd Pitch] Not sure where this goes, or why you would want to climb it. Probably easy ground leading up to the cockscomb.


Location 

Discontent is located at the extreme south end of Upper Broadway. To reach it go south past upper broadway chimney until you run out of ledge.


Protection 

Gear placements for gear were not common, and were mostly hollow sounding flakes.
