Area Classic, the best moderate at Diablo. Start at the post (circled on detailed area map) and enjoy (~165 feet).
To find this route, look for the trail that goes along the base of the cliff and follow it until you find a wooden post at the base of the cliff, the route follows the bolts directly up from this bolt.
17 bolts to cold shuts.
The descent can be done with one 60m rope by using the rap anchors on Highly Caffienated for the second rappel. Faster and more comfortable to drag a second rope and rappel from the top.

Great climb for the grade. A full rope pitch of sustained 5.8 all the way with plenty of bolts for those that need it. A few 9 moves near top.

So glad to have finally climbed Post Moderate, and I have to say, it lives up to it's reputation as one of the best easier climbs around. Having not climbed for 3 months, I found my endurance on this route to be the issue, not the moves. Certainly a must-do!

We placed an anchor high directly above the dihedral which starts this climb (you can see it from the approach and right). And we didn't continue because we hadn't cleaned the large block which Post Moderate skirts on the left. This is another instance of groups working on the same piece of rock at about the same time.

Looks like they're about ready to dislodge, and they're the obvious thing for an inexperienced climber to grab onto. Could easily kill somebody on the ground.
- *** Be VERY CAREFUL of the big fractured blocks heading for the mid-anchor (just beneath and to the right of the anchor).***

I agree with Dave re: the potential rockfall.
Aesthetically, my favourite local climb, & per Jason's comment: a great warmup.
Because of it's length, this is a great training route to teach passing a knot, belaying from the anchors, managing multiple ropes, etc. prior to taking someone on multi-pitch.

Climbed the route a few weeks ago. Great long moderate sport route. Camped at the parking lot but had to leave because of a rowdy party that started after midnight. Felt like trouble in the making. We won't be camping there again.
