Getting established on the steep start is difficult, then the final clip is a tad far, but clipping off a jug. That is pitch one. The next pitch is the crux, move off a good right hand to a tips sidepull and a high left foot made this an awkward rock over. Then a difficult finish to boot.


From the ledge/trail next to Great Race, 4th class to the large Oak/ledge above and look for bolts right of Warhippies.


10 bolts to climb to top (if you climb the third pitch of Warhippies)

Yogalicious would definitely have helped on 2nd pitch! First pitch is great, but it's not clear whether to climb straight over the bolts with crimpy nonexistent holds or move right with smooth, fluid, much more fun climbing that it also easier.

It is possible to rap these climbs (Gone Grey, War Hippies, Peacenik) with a 60 m rope. 60 m reaches the main ledge from anchors on top of first pitch of War Hippies and Peacenik. It also reaches the start of Peacenik from the top of the second pitch, after which it's a moderate downclimb to the main ledge, or a second rap. This second pitch anchor is what you need to stop at when rapping from the top.

Peacenik is a GREAT climb, especially when linking with the top pitch of warhippies. The crux is also height dependent that is much, much harder the shorter you are. I'd say a solid 5.12 if you're under 6 feet tall and 11+ if you're over 6'. Overall though, this climb is badass.

Yup, having now done the 2nd pitch clean and being well under 6', I can safely say that the crux move is height dependent. Reaching that key hold is way, way hard for us shorties!! And, wow, is that 3rd pitch ever terrific -- well worth getting to it.
