5 out of 5 stars Hard for the Grade Especially if you're Short

Took me a bunch of tries to get this one as I kept pumping out at the crux. Great movement on positive slopers. It's considerably more difficult if you're short; just ask my wife.

4 out of 5 stars Fun thuggish route

Didn't require too much technical movement just some strong pulling on good holds. Great jams throughout the climb prevented me from pumping out. First 11a on-sight. Could be soft if you can jam the cracks, but I believe it's spot on for the grade.

2 out of 5 stars Tricky moves

Hard for a warmup. Has a tricky moves at 1st and 2nd bolt. Moves better once you get past the crux.

2 out of 5 stars Decent warmup if available

If Hippie Dreams and That Eight are taken, this is the next viable moderate warmup.

Ok warmup if Hippie Dreams is taken. Takes longer to dry than the routes at Orange Oswald wall.

5 out of 5 stars Instant Classic!

One of my top three favorite routes at the New. A great warmup for the surrounding climbs as there are great rests all the way up the climb.

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.
