Nearing the final slab move to the anchor.

Description 

This route was a bit difficult to locate. When counting from left to right from mid-crag pinnacle it is the 3rd route (at time of this post). Unfortunately there is a loner bolt between Cool Enough & Jack Be Nimble that makes you think that is the start. It is not.

When looking for the start identify the first bolt as being to the right of a shallow left leaning seam. The bolt that is to the left of the seam appears to be an orphan.


Location 

3rd route right of mid-crag pinnacle - first bolt is right of seam about 8 feet up.


Protection 

11 bolts to shut anchors

Another good route on Boy Scout. Like the others, fun climbing on great holds. And like most on this wall, easier than its original rating. The climb is mostly 5.6 to 5.7; the move to gain the anchor gives it the grade.

Great spot for a warm up or for climbers learning how to lead. Holds are solid and plentiful. I agree, easier than the rating. On the plus side its one of the longer routes on Boy Scout.

Good warm up route. Once you get closer to the anchors, your going to have to move left in order to get to the anchor.

You can top rope this route after leading "cool enough". Seems like the same climb with slightly smaller holds. Both are very fun climbs and good warm ups.

Excellent for climbers learning how to lead, though the anchors on Cool Enough are easier in that scenario. If even a little experience, zero pump for the warm up - basically just gets the hands moving. That said, quite fun all the same.

Can anyone point out any move on this route that is 5.8?

The anchors on this route are worn about half way threw.
