Description 

Another fun Seneca 5.7

Pitch 1: Scramble to and up a low angle dihedral with a nice finger crack for pro. At the top of the dihedral, make some interesting moves to achieve a small ledge with rap anchors.

Pitch 2: Move left into the corner, to another rappel station.

Pitch 3: Follows a corner just right of Old Man's last pitch.


Location 

On the face right of Le Gourmet Direct.


Protection 

Standard rack.

As of May 2009, there was a perma-Alien at the crux on p1. This route would best be done early to avoid the steady stream of rappels that share the same basic line and anchors.

Alien is gone but there is a fixed nut half way up the 1st pitch now.

The second and third pitches are often skipped but are truly worthwhile! Early in the day is probably better to avoid getting rappelled on.

Good route, but as mentioned above it is a common rap route so do it early. I only did the first pitch.
