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.

Monkey Man 5.10c 6b 20 VII 20 E2 5b  WY : Sinks Canyon : Scud Area
This line is a good warmup and perhaps a bit easier than similarly graded routes on the Scud Wall Proper. The crux bulge can be made a bit easier by stemming to the nearby boulder. This route gets shade a bit earlier in the day than the routes on the Scud Wall. This is also the easiest way to get to the summit of the Scud Pinnacle if you don't have a rack with you (and aren't into soloing).Begin behind a bush, balancing up a protruding spike of rock, to reach good holds on the slab.
