5 out of 5 stars TR's P1 on a hot day

We were chilling in the shade on Broadway and take TR runs up Frosted Flake. East Face was deserted this day, hot and sunny morning, the smarter people were on the West Face in the shade. With John and Jean J.

This is a really sweet climb and need to come back to lead it some day!

4 out of 5 stars keep calling this climb kellogs lol

perhaps not the best first climb to jump on at senca for the season/ after a 3.5 hour early morning car ride (its very solid i just syced myself after a really nice rest cause i wasn't happy with my gear and ended up taking once, as soon as i got a few feet up higher the gear was perfect and i felt much better. Good route though ill have to lead it again sometime.

3 out of 5 stars Easy for a Seneca 9

I don't think there's a move on this thing that is harder than 8 or 8+, but there you go. Although there are plenty of spots for pro, I don't trust it. The flake pods out in back, and it seems like cams could walk up and umbrella very easily.
