Start in a shallow left facing corner and climb up to the small overhang. Step left to pass the overhang and find another left facing corner. Follow this corner to a pine tree. This route has pretty good protection, however the R rating is attached because the initial corner is an expanding flake. If you are a solid 5.8 leader at Seneca, do not let the R rating scare you away. Great moves!
Start just Left of Unrelenting Verticality or slightly uphill from Lichen or Leave It.

The pine tree at the top is gone. Climb the corner to the roof, get gear, move out left then up and hit the rappel tree on Roux. Fantastic moves, but the gear is sparse after the initial corner (where you can get good gear). After the roof comes the real runout. That would be a big fall and swing.
Not for the 5.8 Seneca leader. Tony's guide has it at R/X and for good reason.

the whole flake up to the roof is expando and has a history of pins and gear ripping out.
you can get gear in the flake for sure; and i surely remember a nice green or purple camolot before the roof that seemed bomber. I used to love scampering up this one. but don't fall on the lower flake section if you can help it!
