Oh yeah the exhaust brakes while at Princess Snowbird...bring ear plugs that you can sleep in.

They really need an exhaust brake ordinance in that area. The trucks use their exhaust brake all the way to a stop. It is so so annoying.

Wow, what a fruitful yield! Thank you everyone! A diverse and helpful range of info, complete with photographic evidence.

...and Kirby: so glad to reconnect. I'll be flying into DC so I'll certainly give you a call. I guess by TRG reasoning, I am a Flagstaff Climber, but TRG certainly has a piece of my heart.

Jerimiah-- the only issue is that I'll be off to climb in the Sierras June 27- July 5-- so if it's during that time, I'll be using my rack myself :)

Sorry to piggyback off the thread, but can you guys give me some seneca route beta?
I'm interested in doing 'High Test' and 'Nip and Tuck'... I take it both of these start on the broadway ledge, same as 'Orange Aid'?

Do they have bolt anchors at the top?
MP lists both of them as 120'+... are there intermediate anchor stations for coming back down, or are you supposed to traverse to the top of 'Alcoa', or do you need half ropes for these climbs?

I've never climbed them, but according to the guide book a 60m rope will just reach the top of the block that starts nip and tuck.

It's been awhile but pretty sure high test is pretty far to the right. fairly close to Gunsite notch? It did have bolts @ the top but I know we were on doubbles so would not have paied any attention as to how one would get down with a single rope? Nick Goldsmith

High Test and Nip and Tuck both start on the far right side of Broadway. This is not the same ledge as where Alcoa and Orangeaid start.

Nip and Tuck goes up to some old tat, but I have always linked it up to the High Test anchors. A 70 will put you down on Broadway, if you have a long 60, you can swing climber's right and make it to the area where Nip and Tuck starts. Knot your ends! If you are unsure...continue up along the ridge and rap off at the Orangeaid anchors (2 back to Broadway).
