Climbing Area Index / Crag Y / Raster Scan (5.11c)
Directions:  Start at a break just below a short overhanging corner, about twenty feet right from the left edge of the buttress.
Description: Basically an easy route with a hard start, RASTER SCAN requires some rapid sideways movement.
    Pitch 1: Use buckets to leave the ground, then immediately begin moving leftwards along a thin traverse crack (fixed pin) until it is possible to climb up ten feet to a stance at the base of the peapod groove (pin). Easier climbing surmounts the groove and follows cracks to the top, eventually merging with the last part of DECEPTICON. 110', 5.11c

Gear: Standard Rack
Descent: rap the route
History:  June 25,1987 - Larry Hamilton and Scott Hobson did this climb with one aid move on June 19, 1987. Hamilton returned with George Hurley six days later to free it.
