Did Peer Pressure to start this, skipped the junky 5.6 R section by going left to the Obscured by Clouds anchor. Whipped on the marginal bolt but found the path of least resistance a few feet right of the bolt, exactly where the upward flake pinched off. Full friction for 10ft or so and then it let up.
