Ishi was the last Native American Indian known to be living in the wild around the turn of the century. The route was not renamed when it was done free since the existing name seemed so fitting; Ishi was the last aid route to be freed both on the Sunshine Face and at Suicide.
Pitch 1: Climb past 3 bolts to the crux 4th bolt that gains the small left facing corner. Climb the corner (gear), then move up and right on ledges to start the upper bolt ladder. From the third bolt of the upper ladder move left and climb a small flake/offset. From the top of the flake move back right to rejoin the bolt ladder at it's 6th bolt. From there, finish with the last two bolts of Quiet Desperation.
Note that there are now double bolts at the end of the corner, prior to the upper ladder that were/are not used for the free climbing.
Pitch 2: Do the right facing lieback flake that is also the last pitch of Quiet Desperation. Outstanding classic pitch.
