DescriptionThe Talent Scout, though small, is home to two local testpieces, Talent Scout Roof and Powerglide. Requiring both strength and finesse, these problems often send hopeful boulderers skittering down the slick, small edges that some people like to call "footholds" on the west face - black rubber streaks and lots of tick marks are a testament to the challenging nature of footwork on the Talent Scout. In addition to these two fickle, tough problems, the Talent Scout boasts a fun, juggy Standard Route with variations from V1 to V3, and an easier line up the northwest arete.
The base of the Talent Scout has seen some attempts at leveling and paving with flat rocks, making it one of the better landings in the area.
Getting ThereThe southernmost free-standing boulder at Rotary, Talent Scout is easy to find. As the trail heads south from the parking lot around the ridgeline and reaches the Cat's Eye Face, look left and you'll see this small block about 10 feet downhill - walk just past it, turning left on a well-established trail to the base of the boulder.
