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 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
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
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

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

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

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
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

This did not feel run out to me. It felt easier than hop on pop. Enjoyable climb. Apr 15, 2017
