so basically you want a bunch of people to show up and completely monopolize the rock on a day during the weekend? great idea! very considerate!*

Why don't you gather in October during the chili cookoff? Then the lines would look more like Disneyland!

Yeah, considering that Seneca is one of the premier east coast climbing destinations, and you want to go during a month that the rock will be packed already... it might be a lot of hassle for other climbers for a bunch of us to show up and try to take over. Maybe if it was earlier in the year (April?) it would be easier to organize and not make so many folks mad at us. Just a thought.
As for camping there, there are 3 places close by the crag and they fill up quickly with many advance registrations, especially at that time of the year. So again, earlier may be better. Plus July can be bitchin hot in these parts - I know April can be showers, but if you ask me more mild weather is much nicer to climb in than 98 with 100% humidity of July.
Just my thoughts....

Yeah, we could do both technically since they are just next to eachother, but as Anne and I can attest to - Nelson kicks some major boo-tay.

Hey i'm up for either. I'd love to do some more trad a nelson. And Seneca has alot of great routes too. Heck there's no reason we can't do both.

A Cabin at nelson sounds like the best option to me.
