As I recall, this does not join Peter Eater, but goes straight up to a top out on the shoulder. I think there is now a 2 bolt anchor at the top also.

This thing has amazing rock and great moves. For the lead i placed a small nut, clipped the bolt,a #1, a gold offset nut and a couple yellow to red metolius pices for the finish. This is a great climb, the anchor is off to the side and is no good for seconding or toproping

So yeah, the route does not join peter eater, it ends on the large ledge that is the right shoulder of the formation, directly above the crack. It does not have a bolted anchor as of 3/13, gear is .5 to 1.5 inch pieces inbetween patina plates for the anchor. There is however a two bolt anchor set up(rather poorly) for rapelling well to the right of Overpowered by Funk above what appears to be an abandoned project with two bolts.
