Anthony on Caifura (R), and Arin on Insidious Crac...

Seasonal Raptor Closure at Black Wall-Lifted 2016 MORE INFO >>>

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!
