Description:

Boulder up pedestal, place handsize pieces and yank through powerful laybacks. Easy hand crack for a while, then delicate face traverse right to anchors. A stellar climb, and a good one for those just breaking into the grade.

3 out of 5 stars cracks, cracks.

thought it was hard for the grade, even at seneca. starting from the right vice left is clearly the more reasonable (read: safer) way to approach. two falls/sits.

Definitely soft for Seneca 10a, but still a great climb.

5 out of 5 stars Great route

Other than the bouldery start, its a great route if your breaking into 5.10 trad. This is the lightest 10a at seneca, and it felt like a true 10a to me. I am also over 6' tall, might make a difference toward the top.
