Description

A classic and easy route. The ledge at the top of the first pitch is big, but will have beginners clinging to the rock .The first few moves of the 2nd pitch are very exposed.

There is a lot of loose rock on the 3rd pitch, be careful not to dislodge rocks because there will be people below you.

1st Pitch
Climb the chimney and cracks to the left of the ledge for 50ft. At the ledge traverse north to a left facing corner. Climb the corner and face to rings, pitons, or a gear anchor on a large ledge to the left with views to the south. Watch for hollow flakes on this pitch.

2nd Pitch
Step out from the ledge to the large chimney. Be sure to protect your seconds during the first few moves, a fall will swing them into the wall. Continue up the crack and chimney to the right. Climb until you reach a large sloping ledge with a tree. Belay from tree and gear.

3rd Pitch
Continue up the chimney. It eventually breaks down into a rock covered slope. Belay from tree and roots. The 2nd and 3rd pitches can be strung together.

Location

At the far southeast end of Seneca rocks. Go up the east face trail for maybe 100 ft then follow the rock. Pull a few easy 5th class moves (less than 10 ft) to reach a large ledge with trees.

Protection

Some fixed gear, you might be able to get something in aound three inches, buta rack of nuts and a hex or two would be adequate
