Description 

Across the gully from Warrior Wall and just uphill from Keen Acres, Peek-a-boo Tower blends in with the non-descript rock surrounding it. Once spotted, however, the tower is a striking feature with an exposed and wild summit. The rock surrounding the tower itself is also home to a handful worthwhile lines. All the climbs on the tower begin with an ascent of Yard Art, and could easily be combined for a full-day of varied climbing high off the deck.


Getting There 

Approach as for Duty Dome and Warrior Wall, but continue to head right when trails to those crags branch off to the left. From the bottom off Keen Acres, skirt around the left side of the crag and up to the base of Yard Art.

After climbing the first few pitches of Yard Art (mixed, 5.9), move belay 30 or so feet to a bolted belay ledge for Lawn Darts or the 4th pitch of Yard Art. From the belay, move up the slab on good friction and solid edges. Holds get a little thinner/more balancy as the angle increases. The crux is pulling a bulge 2/3 of the way up the route with good feet and thin holds. This is an incredible line with fantastic movement! ...[more]   Browse More Classics in WA
