Description
The Burn is the first route one comes to after hiking around the corner from the Southern End on one's way up the Stairmaster. Start on a block with a small tree.
P1: Climb up the face via cracks and through the overhang above to the Ecstasy Junior belay ledge. Most people stop here but there is a second pitch.
P2: Climb up the face to the right of a corner.

One can escape the crux fingercrack of the route by stepping left to a small corner system and a tree (The Burn Escape 5.7). I have never seen or head of anyone doing the second pitch, but it is in the guidebook. I think most people just climb the 2 pitch of EJ (5.4) which is one of the best easy pitches at Seneca.
The Burn can be top ropped from a set a shuts below the ledge (the ones at the ledge are for rapping). It is a bit of a rope stretch for a 60 m rope. You may have to stand on the boulder at the base to belay. Feb 9, 2007

2nd pitch was also quite fun. Jun 3, 2011

we had to wade the river after the flood of '85 took the old bridge out. this was the crux.
my hands froze solid following Greg up the Burn and then only warmed up in the finger crack. Then they "burned" as the blood flowed back in. May 23, 2012

If you stick along on the proper route, wide crack to the right of Sunshine, the route feels more like a stout 5.8 - on par with Seneca grades.
Find some protection near the start.
No shuts - Rap off from the rap rings on the pitch one ledge (shared by Ecstacy Jr and Sunshine). Need a 70m for the rap, a 60m won't make it to the ground. Jun 26, 2017

Also, can confirm the chipmunk in the crack (I thought it was a pigeon when I heard it though) You can traverse around right to avoid it. Sep 25, 2017
