Description

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.

Protection

17 bolts to cold shuts.

The descent can be done in two rappels 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.

Lowering from the top with a single 80m rope will leave the climber roughly 10 feet off the ground with some required downclimbing to get down safely. Tie a knot in the end of the rope if doing this.

Lowering from the top with a single 90m works. :)
