5 out of 5 stars Woo Wee

Awesome climb - stellar moves, and heady. Climbed with single rope, no drag issues. Low crux to ledge seemed height dependent (easy if taller). Moving through bulge up high seemed harder. Put this climb at the top of your ticklist and showcase your send on your mantle for everyone to see.

5 out of 5 stars High Test - test piece for me

5.9 ++ (super thin difficult start harder than castor) had me questioning my gear. some could call it PG, but more just like finicky gear and the hard moves coming well above your pieces (10+ feet) trust the face climbing, combine the pitches and take lots of long runners. a 65m rope got us down to the castor/pollox ledge. might be my most committing seneca lead to date. SUSTAINED GREATNESS
