A slightly runout climb that shoots up the middle of The Peanut at the bottom and meets up with the finish of Pop Goes the Nubbin.

It may seem a little silly to add a "PG-13" rating to a climb like this, but a leader should feel comfortable on knobby runout terrain; there are definately better-protected 5.8s in the park if you're looking for an easy first lead or something.


6 bolts to a bolted anchor.

This did not feel run out to me. It felt easier than hop on pop. Enjoyable climb. Apr 15, 2017
there are a few spots on this climb where the only holds are hollow sounding flakes which flex under thumb tension, with a lot of cleaning up this would be a mediocre climb Feb 9, 2017

Simply not nearly as good as other 5.8's you'll find around the area. Tough/Dangerous start with a techy crimp haul. Jul 19, 2016

My friend blew it going to the first bolt on a cold morning and broke his ankle. It's only 5.8, but don't hesitate to use a stick clip! Jun 13, 2016

The beginning of this was hard! I was able to comfortably onsight all other 8s without a stick clip but I had to ask someone going up a neighboring route to clip the first bolt on the way up... Definitely committing moves for a 5.8 on this one. Mar 26, 2016
Normally I feel comfortable leading 10a/b, but my first time at Smith my partner and I got shut down trying to make the moves to the first bolt. There are definitely better things to start out on at Smith. Oct 28, 2015
Definitely a committing but easy move to the first bolt. Delicate moves on tiny knobs make for an excellent but slightly nerve wracking climb if you are not a confident leader. Oct 9, 2012

This route is a bit more runout than it's neighbor to the left, but I think that if you can confidently clip the first bolt you will have no problems above. Jul 13, 2010
