Named for my friend Peter M, who did not snag the FA!
My first V5 BITD, so I am quite attached to this problem.
2.5 stars, better than 2 stars.

I did the FA on this one. I felt a bit bad because Pete had singled it out as a good route. Whitey, Pete and a bunch of people were working on the problem one day and I joined them. I sent it after a try or two.

You always 'stole' our projects, Andrew. I bet it didn't feel too bad :)

I broke the gaston hold off of this problem this morning topping out the V1 of all things with my foot on it. Definitely will still go but with some beta change, i think now hitting the small crimp up and left with your left hand instead of going to the gaston that is gone then going right to the v notch jug it definitely goes. maybe a small bit harder but i would hesitate to change the grade.

this is more of a bummer for the natural arete problem, which was very classic pure line. petes traverse is a many times broken eliminate "classic" from yesteryear. the jug starthold is on my bookcase, and i have broken feet on it three separate times.
