Bolted anchors at the top. Crux move is beneath the small overhang. You must move left out onto the face to pass the overhang. After passing the overhang, you come to a large ledge that is 10 ft below the anchors. It's really not worth it to try and climb past that ledge.

What is 'Scoundrel' and what is 'KMA' has been confused by the anchor placement rather than previous natural anchors. The rope line strictly on the wider face (after starting in the dihedral) is 5.8, as Kelley gave to 'KMA'; and the dihedral is not 5.6, nor the right face. Current usage is to name the third set of anchors 'KMA' and ignore any reference to 'Scoundrel'. A lot of beginners have been tormented and terrified by being put on these anchors and goaded up behind the peculiar overhang no matter what. David's comment about the finish does not apply to straight up the white face below the anchors: that too is 5.8 unlike the little corner to the right.

Fun TR to warm-up. Climbed on the face the right of the dihedral. Much harder than 5.6 if you don't use the dihedral.
