Description

Follow the blocky left facing corner system straight up to a large ledge, then move right to the bolt anchors. Great gear and a light 5.8. There is a second pitch that links to the second pitch of Skyline Traverse and doesn't see a lot of traffic (to my knowledge).

Location

South End

Protection

Set of nuts, set of cams and several draws to sling past a few bulges.

The second "pitch" (really a boulder problem connecting Ye Gods to Skyline) is fun and easier than it looks. May 27, 2008

Great link-up is to do Ye Gods then pull the right side of the face below Skyline Traverse and move up to the Skyline Traverse ledge. Move up and right along the east face and establish a belay. Then climb Dufty's Popoff. Aug 29, 2011

This is one of the best routes at Seneca! It has awesome hand jams and pockets all the way up the first pitch. Best if you lead Candy Corner and then top rope Ye Gods since they use the same anchor. May 21, 2012

I led this on a nice fall morning. I found a full on pump by the time I reached the p1 belay. Great gear but a tricky lead. Oct 22, 2012
Another great link-up is to combine pitch one and two.

then climb the route Easy Skankin (5.9 face mixed with some bolts). This route is on the left side of the Skyline chimney. mostly bolts if I recall and somewhat of a hidden gem. Mar 19, 2016
