|I would rate this climb R, for sure. Placed a critical nut in the lower section to protect crux moves and as I climbed past, I realized the nut was behind a loose chock (did not realize this before). There were no other placements and at this point you're about 15' off the deck with a very bad landing. Be ready to climb 5.9 crux moves with no gear for this one.|

|Sustained with serious start! A reasonable lead for a climber familiar with Seneca 5.9-5.10. Don't let its reputation keep you from giving it a try!|

I hesitate to call this 5.9 and not give it a "+". It is quite sustained and lives up to its name, with just one decent rest in the middle. Is any one move harder than 5.9? Possibly. But it is Seneca. There is definitely a "don't blow it here" section which just happens to be in the low crux section. The upper crux is just pure fun.
At the base of the crack/start of crux you can place a #3 C4 which is bomber. The back two lobes will be closed down more than the front two, but each set will be equal which is acceptable.
Awesome route with fantastic moves...unrelenting for sure.
