One of three decent trad routes on the Scout Rock formation, this line takes the wide crack on the West face to unpainted chains. It is s a bit of scramble getting to the crack, but this can be done nicely by starting a bit to the left. The crack has lots of good stances with fun moves between. The chain anchor gives a good TR to the thin crack on the right. My own impression was close to 5.9, but others call it 5.8, this may relate to how the climbing is approached. The crack will take straight in jams (and wide) or lay-back up to a good stance at a similar level of difficulty.
Bring several wide camming units and some stoppers.

Lieback the crack pulling north. The crux is getting started into the crack, but just go for it.

Fun climb. Definitely felt awkward on lead, but my crack technique kind of sucks so 5.8 is probably about right.
