Aaron Livingston finishing Satisfaction Guaranteed...

Description 

Many amazing individual moves combine to bring satisfaction after working this puzzle out. Peter V expressed a bit of disappointment after solving the puzzle. Sometimes the process is more intriguing than the solution.

Both Tim and Peter rave about the unique movement. Tim originally thought it to be as hard as 5.13c! More consensus will be a better judge.

Location 

South facing around to the right of Melting Bits (5.10d). These two routes are on a separate buttress just east of Scorpion Slab and offer very steep routes.

Protection 

QDs for 8 bolts. The bolts need chains added.

Satisfaction guaranteed, delivered on its promise. This gymnastic beauty left a smile on my face.

I worked on this route a bit with Tim. Tim's envisioned sequence for the opening moves is truly futuristic. I played around and found some different beta that did make the route feel like 12c to me.

I spoke with Tim about the anchors and he gave me permission to put new anchors in. The new anchor with chain is a little lower and to the left. This will prevent any damage to rope while lowering or if you want to top rope. Tim's original anchors are still there if you want to do 2 more moves and clip them you can.
New anchor added on 10/20/2013.

Thanks Tim for this awesome route!!!

Definitely agree on 12c for this one. Lot's of ticked holds that are misleading and would definitely up the grade several letters if you used them. Awesome route!!
