5 out of 5 stars Best route here

Seneca at its best. Its worth the wait. Get out early and you will be the first ones on. Semi difficult route finding but usually there is a nice trial of chalk. Second belay is exposed over the cave. Expect to not be able to hear your partner after you make the traverse on the second pitch.
