Access Issue: Red Rock RAIN AND WET ROCK: The sandstone is fragile and is very easily damaged when wet. Details

Description

On the far right side of the Sunny and Steep wall sits a low angle, thin slab. While nowhere near as steep as its neighbors, Working for Peanuts is a good way to get things going or warm things down before/after the long hike.

Begin just left of the first bolt. Climb up a very serious and tricky start to gain some easier climbing above. Hold on tight up through the second bolt and stay on those feet, work right a bit and follow the most prominent features passing three more generously spaced bolts to a chain anchor.

Location

Working for Peanuts is on the far most right side of the wall, and just right of a shallow chimney.

Protection

Five bolts and a chain anchor.

I will agree that this thing was MUCH harder than I was expecting and scared the crap out of me, but I don't climb because it's a breeze... That's precisely why I liked this route. Mar 5, 2014

Everytime I climb at this wall I do this route and every time its weird... good but not the easiest sequence. Apr 13, 2015

The awkward start reminded me of a few mid-10s, and the climbing did not improve thereafter.

Also not a great route on 2nd - the bolts and the anchor are consistently to the side of the climbing, such that on TR you're always looking at a swing around the buttress. Just, awkward. Jan 1, 2017
