This route is atypical for the Red. Not a jug haul by any means. Start by traversing in from the left on a crimp rail to reach a jug at the base of a crack/flake. From the jug, find very thin feet and work your way up into the flake (crux). From the flake, aim for a large pocket, find a way to get up on a large jug and then figure out a way to reach the next jug up and left. From here, the climbing eases up as the holds are very positive and the climbing is straight forward. You may want to consider stick clipping the 2nd bolt as there may be potential for ground fall if you blow it clipping the 2nd bolt.
From Amarillo Sunset, 5.11b, continue walking left along the cliff. Drop down into the gully and use a hand rope to climb back up to the other side. Samurai is at the top of the hand line on the right.
6 bolts, shuts.
