Description 

THE popular area for moderates on Sinks limestone. Fun routes on good rock in the 10 and under range makes the Scud Area the most popular and crowded area, particularly on weekends. Classics include Stud Alert (10b) and Duck Soup (9+). In additon to the Scud Wall, there is the Summit Pinaccle, downhill from the wall. It hosts a 5.6 trad ridge line, in addition to 3 sport lines (a 12, 11, and 10). If you've climbed here (or climbed it out) and want more Sinks moderates, head on over to Fairfield Hill to get away from the crowds. If your a front range local, you might be saying, 'what crowds'?

Getting There 

From the main parking lot, take the right trail up to the Killer Cave and continue 100 yards to the right.

Super fun must do route on Scud wall. This route starts directly left of 'Duck Soup'. Follow bolts on fairly easy climbing (5.9) to the base of the roof. Follow the outer edge of the overhang getting good lie-backs and heel hooks (5.10c). There is an interesting story regarding this climb. A mysterious climber in a dinosaur onesie managed to climb the route only to get stuck at the chains while trying to rappel. I was forced to lead to the top and rescue this majestic beast.
