5 out of 5 stars hidden gem!

i've never been on this little piece of exposure before. great climb. we were joking about making climbs like this be 5.4 PPL6. That's a 6 rating of pee-peeing down your leg for exposure.

5 out of 5 stars Awesome Route

Probably my favorite climb at Seneca so far. The huge exposure was awesome was a nice change of pace compared to the hornet's nest we had to run over in the middle of the notch. I don't think I've ever moved so fast over rock so high up.
