I thought I heard someone talking about "red on yellow kill a fellow, red on black venom lack" while I was climbing.  When I got home, I found this (and a few others) on my camera.  Seen below the un-named 5.8 on the far left.

It's light colored snout identifies it as a king snake (versus a milk snake). Probably a Sonoran Kingsnake (see link).
