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.

A bit harder than it looks right off the deck.

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.
