Comments: Pitch #4 is often wet and is not very fun. A nasty groove. A MUCH better fourth pitch is do to Lawn Darts instead. Another good option up there is too summit Peak-A-Boo tower itself via the nice West Face route. Bring 2 3.5 inch cams if doing this.

Comments: Fun route. Pretty dang runout, a nice lead for the 5.10 climber though.

Comments: For a rack, take a set of cams to a #6 friend.

The upper crack is much easier to layback than thrutch. Probably 10a as an offwidth.

Those 2 bolts should be chopped as there are perfect gear placements right next to them.

Comments: There are over 10 routes on the south face. Everyone calls it the Stanley Burgner route so it is not confused with other lines like the South Face - Beckey Route, South Face - The Javalin, South Face - The Joust, etc., etc.

Comments: The "crack" is more of a flared groove and is not very fun. 2 stars for its length. Also, who is the idiot that placed 2 bolts right next to perfect gear placements on the upper half of the route?

Comments: The upper crack starts as #1 Camalot, but is mostly #2 Camalot. The first pitch protects perfectly with Aliens. There is a rest 1/4 the way up. Can easily be done as one pitch with the lieback start or one of the two 5.8 handcracks around the arete to the right.

Comments: This route was chopped almost 5 years ago! It is a traditional rock climb, and should have never been bolted. I haven't climbed it, but you'll want lots of small gear like micronuts and ballnuts. When was the last time you've climbed here?
