Location: WV : Seneca Rocks : South End : Ecstasy (5.7)

Comments: 2 fixed nuts and a fixed pin for p2 belay as of July '16. For P3, I headed left towards a decent tree at the top and found #2 and #4 placements in a crack just left and below the tree. No problems finding an anchor up there. Easy walk off to finish. Each pitch was sustained and fun. Lots of exposure! I can't say if it measures up to other classics, but I highly enjoyed this route.

Comments: Super fun climb! One of my favorite 9s at sunset. The crux is a bit of a blind move, but it's all there. I placed lots of nuts on this one

Comments: In Chattrad the photo seems to show the standard start as going straight up. Doing so would set your first piece of gear well off the deck - probably 20' or so. As someone mentioned above, just traverse in from the right for a less heady start. Fun route with a cruxy move down low and a tough finish

Comments: I ended up building a belay after the right facing corner as well, which to me felt like the crux of the route. I commented to my partner that I thought I had started his pitch, seeing as the corner was definitely harder than 5.7. That being said, this was a super fun route. The belay perch was great and worth the extra time for the exposure. P2 was fun jugs. My partner stepped out left for the 5.9 finish, but I went straight up on TR. Solid 5.10 move on some crimps to the anchors. Bring l... more >>

Comments: Man, I can't believe you guys posted these routes! My buddy, mark and I were scoping the "cincinnati wall" last fall on a rainy day. we finally made it back in december or january and this was the only route that was dry enough to climb. we called this one "tennessee triathaoln" since we rode bikes in, hiked up to the wall, and climbed. My partner, Mark Douglass, led this pitch,and I actually led a 2nd pitch to the top of the cliff from the ledge. P2 was a bit runout on probably 5.7/8 terra... more >>

Comments: I've led this as 1 and 2 pitches and both are fun. If you split it up, you can build an anchor at the bolt above the first anchors. Use a number 2 and .4 camalot with the bolt and you're set. It's a good stance as well, although not as big as the anchor ledge, but you belay above the crux move. The belay from the top is awesome. Def worth bringing your partner up..the view and position are spectacular. A 70m will just barely get you down with stretch. But, there is a set of anchors from another ... more >>


Location: TN : Obed & Clear Creek : North Clear Creek : Squeeze Ledge : The Crack (5.7)

Comments: There is a roof above the climb so it might stay dry in rain, but as the pics show, it seeps a lot. More so in winter i think. I just led this for the first time and it was nice. A headier lead than alpine dihedral because the crux is down low. Protected the crux with a 3 and 2 before the move and then got a 4 in right above it.

Comments: You're probably thinking this route would be a good warm up. So was I, as I led up, and got sucked into the crack, which would be the only way to climb this route at 5.7. I ended up running it out past the second to last bolt since it was near impossible to clip from the crack. That along with the fact that the bolts are horribly rusted out make this one to avoid

Comments: The bolts on this route are still looking very rusted and bad. They definitely could use replacing. I would skip this one

Comments: 75? More like 30 feet. I don't think there's a climb at leda that's 75 feet. Still lots of fun and a tricky 5.9
