Same as Peek-A-Boo but after the Peek-A-Boo stem move climb straight up along the dihedral instead of traversing right along the ledge.

This is a pumpy but direct route to the P2 anchors of Peek-A-Boo. After making that beautiful Peek-A-Boo stem move across the deep void, continue left up the dihedral just under the roof. Bring some long runners to protect the lead to the anchors and to protect the second as he makes the travers up the dihedral.

Climbing this route seemed to cause thunderstorms. Every time we started it that weekend a storm drove us off.

Great climb though. The peak-a-boo move is really fun, but it may intimidate the beginners in your party.

Also, I did a variation of the route right after the peek-a-boo move. Instead of traversing all the way around, I just went straight up. I think it's more like a 5.8, but it protects very well and gives you less rope drag to worry about. Protecting your second on the long traverse requires imagination.
