Description:

5.7+. Look for the large double roofs left of Conn's West and with the same start as Old Man's route. Belay for P2 below, on a diagonal crack. A couple of lose blocks, but easy to see, on the belay and between the 1st and second overhang. on P2..

5 out of 5 stars seconded 1st pitch, led 2/3rd pitches

great climbs! first pitch is very cool crack climbing, second pitch is some pretty hefty roof-pulling.

4 out of 5 stars Nice overhang

First trip to Seneca Rocks, WV. I followed this route the first time and have led it twice since then. Great little overhang. Easy approach hike.
