Description 

The Infectious Cave is named after the route, Infectious Groove, an overhanging pocketed 5.13b, that takes a left to right diagonal line up the center of the cave. There is a companion 5.13c counter-diagonal line moving right to left called Ghetto Boyz. The cave is sheltered from the sun for most of the day, and contains a handful of quality routes.

Getting There 

Follow the detailed direction for getting to the Hood. Take the trail south (left facing in) from the corrosion cave past the Walk-By Slab a few hundred yards into the trees.

Urban Decay

Urban Decay 5.12c 7b+ 27 IX- 27 E6 6b  NV : Mt. Charleston : ... : The Infectious Cave / Slab
This is a great route and a bit different than some of the other steep routes at Charleston in that it is crimpier than others, and doesn't seem to have as many pockets. Start up easy ramp and then head up through steep pumpy enduro climbing....[more]   Browse More Classics in NV
