Description:

This is an outstanding route, a real classic. The climb is located just left of Jim Dandy. Climb a long pitch up the slab roughly following a crack system, full rope length. There is a bolt belay station at the top of the pitch. You will see the Peek-A-Boo move across from your stance. Clip the bolt and pull across the gap, follow the traverse to the next crack system and follow it up until you can get back on the face at the end of the roof. You can go up, rap off, or traverse to lunch ledge from here. The gear is excellent on this climb.

Descent Options:

Requires 2 ropes if rappelling down from 2nd pitch to first pitch belay on Jim Dandy! Free-hanging rappel. Don't send someone who's never rappelled especially without a backup..

5 out of 5 stars P2

With Matt Seats. Tried the move straight up after the Peek-A-Boo step but couldn't get through it. Maybe just pumped but sketchy downclimb to ledge to take traverse if you can't make the 5.9 direct.
