5 out of 5 stars Simple J Malarkey

Jim McCarthy called this a 5.6. This was one of my favorite routes that I did in a week at Seneca - a great adventure with three short unique pitches. A tiny cam makes the first pitch a bit safer, the ramp is airy, and the roof is extremely improbable.

I started up SJM, as there was a party on Ecstasy & I'd never climbed it before... reached the horn on the Muscle Beach finish, but failed to commit; would like to complete the final pitch of MB, but will probably traverse into it from Ecstasy next time (a much more enjoyable climb IMHO).

2 out of 5 stars Interesting.

Fun climbing after the first pitch. We did the SJM overhang variation - this is the last pitch of Muscle beach which is excellent.
