Comments: I'd been looking at this route for a while and finally tried it yesterday. However, because of my aversion to ground falls, I immediately backed off the start, which is a kind of alcove/corner/crack/chimney/whatever that leads to a ledge with a large triee. So my partner and I went looking for another way to access the ledge. We found one about 15-20 feet to the right. A nice seam goes up and to the left. You can practically walk right up it.

Hellbender up in Davis serves burritos the size of your head.
Avoid the older section of Yokum's Motel at all costs. Appalachia Cabins, just north of Seneca Rocks, has a row of motel rooms that are much nicer (complete with micro wave, toaster, fridge, and coffee maker) and cost the same.
When they say that the ratings on Seneca Rocks climbs are stiff, ... more >>
