Tall Climb to Be Good On

A great route just left of the Peek-a-boo gully. One of my all-time favorite route names, too!
Scramble up a low-angle apron for 15 feet, then step right and head up the finger crack that dead-ends under a little overlap. At this overlap, reach up and clip a bolt, and then either climb left around the overlap (slightly easier) or punch straight up the steep slab. Clip another bolt, then move up through the cool, steep jugs (a third bolt) to a two-bolt anchor on a nice ledge.
The route is located just left of the Peek-a-boo gully. From trail below the east face, locate the crack at the start of this climb, ~75 left of the bottom of Peek-a-boo.
Some small gear for the finger crack, plus draws for the bolts.

Solid pro up to the bolts. The route (which is only 5.9 for the first pitch, before it joins Hidden Crack), has some fun reachy moves at the roof. You can clip the first bolt before pulling the roof.

Exciting CLimb! The first crack section takes mid/small placements perfectly and the bolts are well placed to protect the route well! Some lengthy moves up high but overall a great climb for the grade. Its a route that takes some thought but you will just feel that much smarter after doing it.
