Comments: being tall is helpful but not necessary. My 5'5 friend had to use a different foot than me (i'm 5'11) but was still able to pull the top. This route is awesome.

Comments: the green alien fits but if you made it that far you'll be fine without it. The feet are huge up there and it's not all that run out from the last bolt. This route is fantastic.

Comments: This is a great route. 2 stars because of the drilled pockets and it tends to get a bit dirty but holy cow is the climbing ever fun.

Comments: This route is really good. Two distinct, thoughtful cruxes split up by very enjoyable climbing. I think 5.9+ is fair but I do agree that if it were on the south side it'd get a 10. #keepnorthstiff

Comments: The crux isn't long but it's harder than anything on Sugar Frosted Razor Flakes I think, and I thought that was hard for 11a.

Comments: Alternately this route can be started in a hand to finger crack on the face just to the climbers right of the start described here at 5.7.

Comments: Highly recommend walking around and doing the direct start. Adds enough variety in 30 extra feet of climbing to make this an area classic.

Comments: update to add as of summer 2015 there are rings around a tree at the top of this route

Comments: I'm with climbinbob. I think this is a hard 5.9, even for Seneca. Lots of fun though and well protected.

Comments: happy to read this. I too thought the single hardest part of the climb was pulling the 5.7 roof.

Comments: Matt the one to the left was orginially called char i think. then it broke, got resent, and was named f#$k char. Then it broke, and i think char sent it again, and might've renamed it something else, but then it broke again, and now is unsent i think.

Comments: Pretty far down there. I think as the trail sort of fades away it's in a jumble of rocks to your left.

Comments: This thing is so rad. One of the best cracks in Pennsylvania. And it's 5.11. Also, if you don't want to lay it back some offwidth technique can be applied. But yeah that block behind you is concerning for sure.

Comments: I thought the v chimney at the top added to an already fantastic route. Not dirty at all, protects well, enjoyable and exposed stemming. Five star route for sure.

Comments: kind of the arete and the face to the right of the arete. The face on the left side is another problem that's supposed to be V5 where you get established and throw for the lip, but i've never been able to figure that one out.

Comments: Corporate Strategies. It was V7 then it broke. Not sure now, but harder than V7.

Comments: Came off about a month ago. Casablanca still goes, possibly a touch harder. Cassanova is now an open project.

Comments: We're definitely putting our heads together trying to decide what to do here. It would be a shame to lose this thing.

Comments: As is the case for Casablanca, use extreme caution if you're looking to climb this problem. The large flake used for the starting holds could break off very soon. Wouldn't create much of a fall but it's probably pretty heavy.

Comments: I had another wall in a barn then it turned out that barn was falling over so had to move it to this barn, of which our occupation is tentative at best, so eventually I may need to find a more permanent home for all my holds. I miss my garage wall.
