Description

Blocky Party has a very low crux, the first piece or two could prove very important. After the first 15 feet the climbing becomes easier.

After pulling thru the low overhang continue up the crack and finish at the anchors for Ambush.

Location

Block Party is located at the right of a small cave immediately to the right of Ambush.

Protection

Gear up to hand size. Anchors at the top.

It has a tricky start. Once you pull through the first moves you will be in a layback position trying to place a cam in a blind crack. Hang in there cause it eases off soon. The rest of the pitch is interesting but not as difficult as the start. Feb 19, 2008

Fun route, I think this was the first 5.8 I did at Seneca. Steep in places and fun climbing. Mar 1, 2009

The starting moves are hard and with consequences if you pump out getting the first piece in. Pumping for a couple of more pieces. Aug 23, 2011
Full on Seneca 8 for the first 15 feet. I felt better once I was standing on the hornelette and dropped a #4. Jul 23, 2013

So you lead 5.8?! Seneca at it's best. This route will work you for the first 20 feet, have your gear ready to place. Oct 20, 2014
