DescriptionScout Rock is a small cliff situated right along the roadside in SSV canyon. The rock is variable in quality having some horrible chossy stuff that no one will climb and some excellent, consolidated granite. It holds a few trad routes, and it has seen some recent sport route development. The cliff faces South, gets great sun, and has been climbed throughout the year. Owing to its location at the bottom of the canyon, sun in winter is pretty sparse. Because Scout Rock is so close to the road, climbing here requires a lot of attention to the traffic. Some cars and trucks have been known to scream through the SSV, despite its sane speed limit. Nonetheless, it is fairly easy to keep out of the road, just be very aware.
There are now several trad climbs on the west side of Scout Rock, where the beginner/intermediate trad leader can work up the ladder of difficulty: Scout Route (5.5), Funhouse Chimney (5.5), But for a Silver Bullet... (5.6), The Lone Ranger (5.6), Route 166 (5.7), Tom Thumb (5.8+), Exit Stage Left (5.9-), and In a Pinch/Genie (5.11c).
