/ recommend me a rope....
Dry treated is a must.
50m or 60m? what grades have you used it up to both winter and summer?
what is it like for a scrambling rope?
for a scrambling rope personally I'd normally not want more than 30m and pref around 9mm. I don't normally take rope on scrambles though, I just adjust the scrambling grade to weather and conditions and sometimes take rock boots as a back up.
even for the harder scrambles which include full gear placement?
Even the easier scrambles can include full gear placement or indeed actual rock climbs soloed. For me much of the point of scrambling is I normally do it without a rope, however if I was pushed into a scramble I may need a rope for on the day it still generally wouldn't get used and would stay in the bag.
I tend to see a rope as a back up for scrambling rather than pitching being part of the experience. That's why I generally would go for something short and lightweight and would compromise some of the security of having a thicker rope to do this. Obviously if that's appropriate for you is highly dependent on your aspirations, confidence and ability.
