Excellent route, but stout for the grade. Took me a while to dial in the beta, and even then it felt more like 5.11b/c. Found this one more fun (and challenging) than Satisfaction.

Agreed that it is quite stout for the grade. Tough moves getting through the slick, slabby face and I couldn't get into position for the knee bar rest. Not using that knee bar rest makes that clip above the roof really tough.

I didn't find it to be nearly as fun as Satisfaction Guaranteed.
