Blocky Party has a very low crux, the first piece or two could prove very important. After the first 15 feet the climbing becomes easier.
After pulling thru the low overhang continue up the crack and finish at the anchors for Ambush.
Block Party is located at the right of a small cave immediately to the right of Ambush.
Gear up to hand size. Anchors at the top.

It has a tricky start. Once you pull through the first moves you will be in a layback position trying to place a cam in a blind crack. Hang in there cause it eases off soon. The rest of the pitch is interesting but not as difficult as the start.

Fun route, I think this was the first 5.8 I did at Seneca. Steep in places and fun climbing.

The starting moves are hard and with consequences if you pump out getting the first piece in. Pumping for a couple of more pieces.

Full on Seneca 8 for the first 15 feet. I felt better once I was standing on the hornelette and dropped a #4.
