Start of the route, coming out of the corner.
Peer pressure takes the intimidating line right up the corner between Kundilini (5.12d) and Social Outcast (5.12a). This route is a favorite at the grade. If you don't have it dialed in, it can get quite pumpy near the chains (to avoid falling at the chains climb to a good hold at the top before clipping).
Starting with a stick clip due to a nasty tumble factor. Head up the right wall on super crimpy holds then up and left in to the corner proper and use pods and pockets to get to the wicked nice rest ledge. Rest up cause it gets harder.
Layback up the flake above past a somewhat hidden pin. This part can be scary looking down at the ledge so focus on your killer footwork, and punch it for the top.You are safe.
Big corner on the left end of the crag.
6 bolts, 1 pin, chains.

Cool climb, bring a spider wand if you are the first one up it that day.

If you are short, this climb gets quite hard in hurry. I watched someone that was about 5'4" do this and they were definitely having to do some 5.11 climbing. Nice route.

The pin is gone. A bit more exciting charging to the last bolt.

Best moderate at Rumney. Hard to clean on lowering, will you hit the tree?

This route, along with Social Outcast, Social Distortion, Noodle, and Centerpiece are all a challenge to clean on lower. If you have to do it, retrieve the lowest one or two draws by climbing up a short distance from the base (after you have lowered all the way to the ground, without getting the lowest one or two draws). My 2 cents.

I did this route today after a long hiatus. Nice, and it felt less sharp than I remembered. Not sure of the bolt count today but the protection is G-ish even with the pin gone. Hanger on last (Rawl) bolt, after power layback section, is loose. Finish the route; don't grab the chain anchors from the pocket hold.
