The route name and rating is incorrect. It's called Pentatoidal Membranes and it's rated 5.7 with no protection rating in the guide book. It felt a bit harder than 5.7 to me, but that could have been because the crux was very technical and committing. Although if you have smaller fingers, you can get through it differently like my second did. I'd also rate the protection at PG, but this is not Seneca's typical PG which is much sparser. It's a little sparser than you'd like and gets worse near the top. Near the top don't make the mistake of protecting the 3 inch wide flake to the right that you end up standing on. It's not completely solid. You can feel it vibrate under your feet. Go for the crack right in front of you behind the eight inch flake even though there is less options. Figuring out how to get past the shallow crack with the V at the bottom half way up was very interesting. Jun 7, 2016
