4 out of 5 stars finally

Finally did this one. It was great. Loved it. Felt easy at the grade, although a little pumpy. Would be 5 stars if it were just a little longer.

3 out of 5 stars Looked Wet

Went up to the ledge for this climb. Crack was seeping wet. Climbed Alcoa instead, then TR'ed OA. Hah! I would have spit off of this multiple times, I think. Tough sucker. Went left at roof, mistake....

5 out of 5 stars Orange Aid

My favorite pitch in a week at Seneca: brilliant positioning, pretty rock, and great gear. Placed a ton of nuts and tiny c3s. Stannard called this 5.9, I'm not that inclined to disagree.

5 out of 5 stars Came Close

Came really close to falling, but got it clean after a couple desperate lunges at the crux. My feet popped once and then I just barely had gas to pull up onto the jugs under the roof. I hope the 3rd times the charm and it feels easy.
