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.
