This enjoyable slab route climbs straight up the middle of The Peanut. It's well-protected and technical climbing.
7 bolts and a bolted anchor

I found the second bolt on this climb to be an insecure and spooky clip. Also, the run up to the anchors is fairly run out. I wouldn't upgrade the seriousness of the route (particulary since I am a chicken on pebble pinching slabs), but I didn't think this was a casual 10a romp.

I see why you say that. I don't think it's quite as run-out as Peanut Brittle (which I gave a PG-13), but I could be remembering it wrong. It's been a few years since I've been on it.

The spacing of the 1st two bolts is a little bold- if you call the 5.8 pg13, this one definitely is.

I thought that this route was burly for the grade. I also agree that the second clip is a bit of a barn burner.

I have to agree the first two bolts are especially spicy. After that it's still challenging but not as intense.

I think the second clip is only sketch if you are too far right. Moving left on to smaller holds just before the bolt led to a nice stance.
