Comments: Spelling is correct. Ballet and Arete due to the starting foot positions and technical dance to climb it the original way ;) DC

Comments: A bit of a highball V0 boulder problem to first piece (15' or so). Good gear after this in each horizontal you pass. Light PG rating for the start. Good quality climbing. An easy and bomber TR set up if your not comfortable leading it.

Comments: Classic Seven Tour.
After the Hundred Club this is the next best way to spend a long day at Seneca. Best on a weekday or less crowded weekend.

My favorite tour, in order of routes... SJM, Ecstasy, Dufty's, Prune, Crispy Critter, T Jam, West Pole, Pleasant O, Green Wall, Soler, Rox Salt.

Start at sunrise and you should be walking out in time for dinner.

A fantastic way to shake it up a bit if you've been looking for a new Seneca adventure.

Comments: Well equipped. Super friction. 10a, no harder. Good quality moves through lower crux section and then higher up through seam.

Comments: This is a really nice route. Bolts where you want them. Good rests along the way. No moves harder than 5.9, and with so many good rests and well placed bolts, can't see this graded harder than 5.9. Calls on a lot of different movement and technique which makes it a classic and may have some folks finding it more challenging if not experienced on varied rock.

Comments: No harder after the chip break. A little headier maybe. Just makes you use the already good feet more precisely.
