This is my favorite 5.4 in Red Rock. Perfect for beginners, perfect for new leaders...good line in general.
You can also use this line to set a TR for Fleet Street and Muckraker. Although you could set if for Scalawag as well, the rope stretch makes the fall at the crux very dangerous (groundfall is a high likelihood).

I agree with last post; Excellent easy route for the area and especially at this grade! Do not miss and watch out for those Chuckwalla's living in the cracks!
great route! just bring small nuts for the lower half, a few small cams up to metolius black (0.75 camalot) would be fine for the upper section. nice bolted anchor and rap station on ledge above overhang. single 60m rope will get you back to the base.

Great place for a new leader because of its low angle, large footholds, and frequency of placement options for small nuts and cams. It's pretty out of the way for most people climbing in the Moderate Mecca area, so it's pretty easy to get on it.

The first pitch can be easily protected with only passive gear IMHO.
