Good list and info.

Satori
I wouldn't say Satori has a hellish approach. Though it is long/hard compared to most in EPC, I remember liking Supernova's approach less. The 3rd class ridge was cool. There is some loose terrain from the miner's road to the ridge though.

About an hour at a moderate pace if you don't get lost, I think.

The hardest part was just from getting lost. So if you head up there, DON'T follow the fixed line up and right through the scree. Look left of it for the red dot trail to continue.

Yankee Clipper
Even if you don't do the 12a to the top, I thought the 14th pitch is still worth climbing. It has some neat moves and gives you a great view down.

Voodoo Trance
You didn't mention it, but I liked this climb. Though the Jungle Wall was crowded, we were alone up in the bowl (accessed from a number of climbs... we scrambled up from above Jungle Boy, but there are other ways, including a walk from the top of the 3rd pitch of Jungle Mountaineering.) The first 2 pitches were lots of fun even if you don't plan to go higher. The third does start with a tough roof.
