This crack system between Post Moderate and Grape Ape is one of the older Diablo routes.

Climb up the low-angle easy corner then undercling/lieback left. Continue up a more low-angle shallow corner crack system with just seams (no cracks, no pro) until the next blocky roofs. Turning these blocky overhangs is the fun & well-protected crux of the route. Rap from the 2-bolt anchor, or continue up the upper half of Post Moderate.

Since the lower half of the fully-bolted Post Moderate can be climbed to reach the anchor, most traffic on Highly Caffenated is from people toproping it these days.
