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.
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.

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
