Comments: Hey, I'm psyched you had an awesome adventure, but lets not claim every trip up these mountains as a new route. There's possibilities for endless variations and if you follow this to the logical end there'll be hundreds of "routes" on here as people try and claim FAs.

Comments: 5.9 is my 2 cents. Requires precise slab technique.

Comments: I believe quarrying has resumed on the cliff face. I don't live in the area anymore so I've edited in the GPS co-ordinates. Anyone that wants to climb here have fun and go for it, tho check with the quarry owner before you do. There is tons of potential for development / adventure.

Comments: I'm traveling right now but I'll have it done by September. I'm probably going to revamp all of pickledish, there's a lot of improvements I'm putting together.

Comments: I'm using it to sort out spaces while I still work out access issues. Once those are sorted then I'll add everything where it needs to be and delete it out.

There's a lot of rock here and I'm still not sure how to best document, so I'm using this as a rough draft space.

Feel free to shoot me an email if you'd like to chat more about it.

Comments: Just some beta, he's off route here. His right foot is on a huge hand jug and there's dead easy foot placements below that jug. I bet the start felt really hard because he missed all the holds!

Comments: Warning - Anchor bolts are both loose. Left one severely loose. Someone with a wrench or ratchet please tighten them down if you climb this.

And since everyone else is offering their 2 cents: Start is easy if you just look for and plan the feet. After that it's fun interesting slab, but I'd say the whole climb is like 5.8. It's about as technically difficult as Morning Glory in Acadia.

That being said, the climb is an absolute blast. Full value, nice and long. Fun... more >>

Comments: As of July 9th 2017, no sappy tree issues that I noticed. An absolute delight of a climb though. Climb this immediately!

Comments: Trust the pitons, they're good. A few aren't great but most are solid and we'll placed with only cosmetic rust.

I've taken falls on worse looking pins in Mexico, and they're as solid as the one on the Saigons at Cathedral.

As of July 30th, 2017, most of the pitons on the main route are solid and should give you confidence.

Comments: Easy feet but thin hands through the crux.

Fun little climb. Worth doing if you're there.

Comments: All bolts are well placed for easy clips. Fun climb.

Its about as technically difficult as Mowgli, so 5.2?

As of July 4th 2017 the lower offs are worn about halfway thru.

Comments: On finding the place:

The rock cairns are good and lead you directly to the cliff. It's the most obvious trail by far.

They deposit you at the slab in front of "Funny Farm" and "OCD"

Comments: Some notes:

  • Lower offs are fine. A little rusty but it's just cosmetic rust. Treat them as rap rings to use them. Absolutely no need to replace them.

  • Some of the bolts are behind ledges. Bring a couple short slings, or double up your quickdraws on them, or skip them to reduce rope drag.

  • This climb is excellent. Fun aesthetic climbing at the grade, traverse as low as possible left on the first 3 to really get the full value.

  • If Clip a Dee Doo Dah is a 5.3, this thing is ...

Comments: Copying routes out of a guidebook and providing useless route descriptions isn't really what anyone would consider "doing your part,"

The subtitle of this site is "Beyond the Guidebook: The Definitive Climbing Resource"

That means more than 6 words to describe a route, and something that would be helpful to someone who doesn't know the area.

Comments: This is the laziest and worst route description I've ever seen on mountain project. It tells someone who isn't familiar with the area nothing helpful.

Comments: Question: is there a forum or website that Seneca locals use rather than Mountain Project? Something like what Supertopo is to Yosemite or NEClimbs is to North Conway?
