Enjoyable, but short. Lots of people like to set up a TR.

There is an easy walk off to the climbers left- Rappelling from the big pine at the top is damaging the tree. When the tree goes, the ground above this climb is going to erode quickly.

Great Features in the crack!

Decent route of moderate difficulty. Crux was pulling up on to the mini ledge below the tree (w/o grabbing the tree). Felt more like 5.6. Definitely would be a good TR route for the budding tradster to practice hand jamming.

Great crack climb and totally worth the lead even though a TR is easily set up. Fingers down low and hands in the mid and upper sections. The crux is definitely getting up to the tree and is true to the grade compared to most Seneca routes. The rest of the crack is easy with many positive features and great pro. Overall awesome climb, only wish it were longer.

This is a great route! It's 5.7 when compared to other climbs at Seneca Rocks. I found the two ledges were a bit terrifying to get above and build enough protection above them so as not to deck on them if I fell. The crux for me was getting into the short off width section, I had no problems topping out. Tree anchor at the top. Walk off to the left on a downward sloping one foot wide ledge.

There is a walk off to climbers left, but not everyone might be comfortable going across the narrow portion, and lower down on the bare rock it can get wet from seepage.
A classic climb that protects well, and rewards good crack climbing techniques.
