4 out of 5 stars Adventure climb

Ended up on this route after deciding to do some exploration of the North Peak. Made it to the top of the route and had to do the crazy traverse to the North Peak summit.

4 out of 5 stars could've used more big pro...

my first lead at seneca, only brought a #2 and both link cams for anything over a .75, a #3 or 2 would've been rather handy... but so many placements I managed fine. Did get a BD BIG nut jammed on lead, spent a few minutes trying to free it but left it for my second, Jared, who needed a take to free it. twisted in pretty tight when I tried to remove it. fun route, well worth it, and a good lead for less experienced gear placers as there are so many good placements.

I was pumped out from followign James up Lichen or Leave it but decided to give this route a try - "Only 5.5, right?" Suddenly my foot popped out from under me - "Shit!" - and I dropped a few feet onto a #1 Camalot - my first lead fall. I tried the move again with the same result. Finally pulled the move on the 3rd try. Should have rappelled from the bolts at the top, but instead we decided to continue up and walk off the North Peak. Got up there only to be confronted with a long, exposed traverse along the chossy summit ridge. Rapped down the Bell Wall off some rusty shuts instead. An interesting end to a fun day of climbing!
