Description [Edit]

This fun little route actually faces West and gets great sun. KeeMoSabe provides a nice warm up for the harder climbs on Scout Rock. The rock is overall good, but still sheds some surface debris. The crux is at the top and is harder if you are short. A thin crux can be had between bolts 3 and 4 by staying to the right.

Protection [Edit]

QDs only. This 70 foot route needs 8 draws and something for the double bolt anchor at top.
This was such a fun lead I can't even express it! Lots of cool moves to be had and very well protected. I especially liked the crux, belly friction is vital on that move... Jun 23, 2001

Really fun route. The crux move at the top is a real knee scraper if you aren't tall enough to get the frictiony holds on the top of the slopey bulge which enables you to walk/smear your feet up. I never ran it smoothly but I will [definitely] return to practice. We are could belay out of your is that close to the road. May 31, 2003

Fun route. Think "smear" with the feet. Also, the quartz(?) block about half way up sounded pretty hollow. I would not recommened yarding on it. There are plenty of other hand/foot holds available at this point. Oct 30, 2006
FYI: The big, quartz block (mentioned by Matt) was removed this evening. I led the route and felt the block flex as I moved past it. In the interest of safety, I had my partner crow bar the block off the wall; it wasn't that difficult to remove. Use caution through this section in the near future -- it was pretty dark by the time we pried the block off, and though we think we got all the loose stuff out of there, it's possible some weak holds remain.

Climbed this one today & no loose holds. Dec 24, 2010

Great route with a fun variety. Blank slabs and bulges make me stop in my tracks to think. My partner was short and TRed - went right over that crux - good balance and confidence with feet it seems! Need to practice my feet and slab, ha.

Lead today, didn't notice any loose rocks or bolts (mainly paid attention to the anchor though).

Highly recommended - it's so close to the road, you can just stop to do it as your warmup or cooldown! Bring a hat if it's sunny! Jun 23, 2012

There's a large block about 6' above the big crystal that is beginning to ring hollow and was seeping a little water from the bottom. I don't think it's ready to fall yet, but if water's getting behind it, it probably won't last many more winters. May 25, 2014

Fun route, but I didn't find the bulge/smear/belly move much fun. Don't fall or you might crack your ankle on the ledge just below the bolt. Still worth doing though. Aug 20, 2016
