Here is a great outing for the Lower Peanuts Wall: Girl's Climb to Forbidden Planet. Begin Girl's Climb in the left facing dihedral uphill from Peanuts (trad 5.8). Cop a rest at the ledge and get a reachy clip over the roof from here. For me, pulling the roof was the crux, done on thin edges with disappearing feet, this route is very similar in character to Private Idaho at Devil's Head. The rest of Gril's Climb entails largely good edges with long runs between bolts, but the climbing never reaches beyond modedrate 5.11 with some high steps on a vertical wall. Excellent stone, sparse pro (all bolts), and good climbing. From the belay you can check out Dale Goddard's classic The Sacred and The Profane. Scramble right into a corner for the belay below Forbidden Planet.
Four draws and a rope.

The anchors only have one quicklink per bolt. It makes it pretty hard to pull the rope....
