Excellent route for the grade. Head right 50 feet from Banjolero and walk up a steep section of the trail to find this enjoyable line on a northeast facing section of the wall. Begin on a small ledge then pull on solid plates to a steeper run for the chains.
Descent: Chains
Stays Dry: Stays dry

a bit runout in places. but fun.

Not a good intro lead, due to the sparse bolting.

Fun Route. The Name really fits with rock face color.

I believe bolts have been added to limit the opportunity to crater.
Jeff said on March 2nd, 2009
2 bolts were added. One at the start and then the third was dropped down a little with another added. There was never a crater factor.
pigsteak said on March 2nd, 2009
I agree with Jeff. never a crater factor. scobro is a gymrat, that's all.

Kudos to route developers for their attention to this line, it's one of the best moderate sport routes in the Red

i climbed it before and after new bolts were added - i like the new bolts. thank you for going back to add them! it's a very enjoyable rock climb. this route was dry when many of the others in the area were seeping and/or wet from the runoff from previous day's rain.

Excellent line for the grade.

destined to be one of the more traveled moderates in the red, especially once it's published.

a really good one!

I've climbed a few very good routes in the Red and this is my favorite. I did take a really nasty lead fall at the top when the sandstone broke on the overhang in my hands as I pulled myself up to the bolts. Maybe it's a higher 5.8 now? or a 5.9 even. It had been raining the two days prior, so maybe I should have known better. Even though this is an easier route, always double check your rope and belayer, because you never know. Be safe out there, this one is great.

awesome route. holds its own with the other easy classics (eureka, 27 years), except for that it's over so soon! unique, interesting looking rock, too.
