|Upper Mount Scott
Climb original Pile Driver route til the ledge, then climb the face left of the watermark. Utilizing the crack in the watermark with your right hand, continue up the slab. If you lead this variation, the runout from the ledge to the crack leaves the potential for a nasty fall. I gave the route a 5.9 since I dynoed the first large left hand hold left of the watermark. If you can smear it, you may think it is a 5.8.
I recommend to top route this route.
Large cams for Pile Driver, then finger crack protection.
