Description 

Guide (Marty's and Peter's) says bolts are too far to the right on the first two clips. Tried going straight up and feels (to me) in the 11b range. Must have been a hold broken off.

Location 

Peter Gabriel Cliff

Protection 

6 bolts to a two bolt anchor.

You start going straight up to the first bolt. Then make a big reach out left to a sort of chossy flake. There's some decent edges for your left foot and an essential crimper for your right which makes this move only 10b/c. Then you climb up a few feet and traverse back right on some more juggy flakes. Leading it this way would be difficult, however, since you essentially skip the 2nd bolt (it's at your knees when you make the traverse back over to the corner).
