5 out of 5 stars Serious Mental Challenge

Tough mental challenge even for Seneca standards. Make sure to protect the second on the way down to the belay station on the 2nd pitch. Used a ton of gear on this one both climbing and at the belay station.

4 out of 5 stars Mentally Intimidating, Physically Reasonable

When you first look at the double roof from the slab below, it looks ridiculously intimidating. But once you make the moves it is really all there. A must do if the route is open!

2 out of 5 stars Awkward and Wandering

Route wanders a bit and is bit awkward. The better warmup is the climb to the right.

2 out of 5 stars Decent Climb if You're in the Area

A little run out and lots of eliminate holds that are marked x, but decent climb if you're solid at the grade.

4 out of 5 stars Sidestep the Stair Master

Good way to avoid the stair master while doing fun moves on good rock. Found the foot traverse on the first pitch to be the most mental part.
