High Test 5.9+ 5c 17 VI 17 E1 5a  WV : Seneca Rocks : ... : Upper Broadway
A maximum value experience not to be missed. You will find a bit of everything on this classic which has been described by at least one experienced regular as a "great 5.9 with a 5.11 crux". Your experience may vary but you will definitely consider an ascent worth your time.Not recommended for a 5.9 leader.Climb the thin crack (cruxy), traverse right then stem up the left-facing corner(strenuous) and finally face climb past the bulge to the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in WV
