Description

Old-school, very sporty, thin slab climb. Be comfortable with 10-15' runs between bolts on a 75-80 degree slab featuring thins edges, scoops and crimps. Easy to escape left to Insidious Crack pretty much at any time if uncomfortable with the somewhat committing thin slabs moves, but true line stays well right of crack at all times. Possible to TR after leading Insidious Crack and travesing right to anchor.

Location

Three bolt route to the right of Insidious Crack.

Protection

Three-bolts, two-bolt anchor on top.

What made up the pucker factor on this climb for me wasn't the short runouts but the buttonhead bolts. Not sure what "Caifura" means, but spicy fo show! Sep 4, 2017

This climb is shown as four bolts to anchor in the North Tahoe Book but in reality, the 2nd bolt is missing. Falling before clipping the 3rd bolt would mean hitting the deck from about 30ft. Cream Puff the neighboring route to the right has 4 bolts over the same distance. Sketchy lead. Anchor is poorly aligned for toproping but works ok with a 120cm+ sling. Jun 15, 2018
