Description

This route will benefit from more traffic, it can be a bit dirty. Climb a small chimney and right facing corner to an overhang. Pass the overhang on the left and then step back right. Follow cracks to the top to reach the two-bolt anchor.

Location

This climb is located on a section of cliff above and to the right of Block Party and the cave to the right. Follow the faint trail to the right and locate a few fixed ropes to assist in the climb to reach this upper face. This climb is the first you will encounter as you reach this section of the cliff.

Protection

Standard Seneca rack to a #3 cam; two-bolt anchor at the top.

Climbs much better than it looks from the ground. Oct 1, 2011

Did this route many years ago and I remembered it being a great climb, so I did it again this weekend and I was right. Follow the trail around to the right and up the hill with fixed lines. Fear of Flying is the first climb you come to with kind of a broken chimney start. Climb 80 feet to a nice new set of anchors. Only 1 60m rope is needed. Oct 20, 2014
I just led this climb yesterday. My old guidebook gives it a 5.7 rating, which is about right for Seneca. Not dirty at all. I thought it had some tricky moves, but a really good climb. I will give it 3 out of 4 stars. Aug 11, 2015
