5 out of 5 stars Serious Mental Challenge

Tough mental challenge even for Seneca standards. Make sure to protect the second on the way down to the belay station on the 2nd pitch. Used a ton of gear on this one both climbing and at the belay station.

4 out of 5 stars Three solid pitches

Did the standard 1st pitch, which is not pleasant, though I felt it had the hardest single move on the whole route, with the possibility of hitting a ledge below it. The 2nd pitch is great, with good pro, and fun but not hard moves. The third pitch was fun, I got in a bomber 0.1 X4 before pulling the bugle to avoid a fall onto the belay. The second belay can be backed up with a number of cams/tricams (0.5, 1, 4 camalots)

5 out of 5 stars Great Route

This was my first time at Seneca and my first multipitch route. Got out a little late and of course the clouds came in early and it was dark by the time I had to clean p2. The traverse is incredibly scary by headlamp. Hanging belay for p3 is very scary when all you can see below you is dark! Great route. Will definitely back in the day so I can get a lead in!
