|South Peak - West Face
The obvious crack system in Traffic Jam notch. Since the notch is usally full of people rapping off this can be a difficult climb to get on, becasue you belayer will be creating a Traffic Jam on the rap.
The back wall is most certiainly off (no stemming) and going around the corner halfway is supposed to be cheating too.
You can walk off by continuing north along the small ridge. You may want a a belay though.
Hand and finger crack on north side of traffic jam notch.
Up to three inches
Me on Traffic Jam!

A Seneca favorite. A great climb when there's not traffic.

"The back wall is most certiainly off (no stemming) and going around the corner halfway is supposed to be cheating too." Cheating? Seriously? Sorry, but this isn't 'Carderock Rules'. It's not cheatin to use the big holds...it's there, use it if need be. Found it to be 5.7+/5.8-; stemmed a move, used the outside edge...every bit as hard as Ye Gods and Little Fishes.

Cheating? When did Seneca turn into the gym? Am I going to have to start taking off my shirt, begin wearing a beanie even when it's 90 degrees out and yell at people that theyre "totally off route brah!"
