4 out of 5 stars Nice!

Cool route. Short and sweet. Again, it's nice to finally have some well-defined holds on a "harder" Seneca route. Got 'er second go. Good pro, all cams, just 4 or 5 needed.

3 out of 5 stars Fun once you learn the moves

Really a short, non-descript climb with a GREAT boulder problem half-way up. Climb Block Party, then toprope Ambush for laps/practice. Bold on lead.

3 out of 5 stars bouldery

The block about 1/3 of the way up is a little loose. the best part of this route is it stays cool and shady all day.
