4 out of 5 stars Scary rock fall

I'd followed at Seneca before but this was my first time leading. Fun route but had a lot of loose rock in the gulley towards the top. Put my hand on a chockstone about the size of a huge watermelon thinking I might be able to sling it. I rocked it softly to see if it would move and it cut towards me and rolled over my pinky finger in between it and the right side of the chimney. It then went crashing down towards my belayer and split apart as it fell. I yelled rock and fortunately she was relatively well protected in the chimney and wearing a helmet but a piece hit her shoulder.

Did the climb in 3 pitches and would do it again despite the dangerous rock fall

5 out of 5 stars 3rd time's the charm!

After my previous attempts on Thais ended ignominiously on the escape, I followed Denny up the corner to the belay & took the lead up to the ledge. Followed denny left from the ledge & up a lichen covered face to finish.
