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.

From the top of the 2nd pitch of Yard Art, the West Face route follows a bolt line that heads left towards and then around the arete of the tower. The Kramar guidebook describes a second anchor near the base of this pitch, but the hangers were gone when we climbed it. The pitch can be easily climbed from the Yard Art belay.Once around the arete and onto the west face, follow a 4-inch fist crack for 15 feet and then climb steeply up a bolted face and arete onto the summit ridge of the tower.This...[more]   Browse More Classics in WA
