Of the routes that we did on Pilot Knob, this was the best. There are two starts, an 8 (easier) or the 9+ (recommended). To do the 9+ start, head up under a roof to the right of Touch and Go and pull through it on the right side onto a face and past a very large wedged block. Protect this and continue up into a crack system slightly to the right, ending after some horizontals. Clip a single bolt and do the second crux (8+) on face moves to reach a bolted anchor.
The upper section of Pilot Knob has two distinct climbable rocks. The left one is arrived at from just below, climbing any of the lower tier's pitches. An obvious left-facing corner, Touch and Go, lies just above. Scoop Up a Little Sky climbs a crack system and face just meter or two right around the arete from that corner.
