This is a great route to reach Back to the Front. Although it's listed in the guidebook as 2 pitches, they are easily combined to make a nice long pitch. P1: 5.7 face climbing. P2: Watch out for a few loose blocks at the start of the second pitch on the corner/arete. Crux moves are around the bolt and up the shallow corner/crack. Finish on Old Man's Traverse Ledge 10 Ft. left of Prune's finish.
Start 10 Ft. left of the start of Prune.
2 bolts and a pin. Standard Seneca rack. Mostly smaller gear. Well protected except for the very easy moves at the start of the first pitch.

P2 has about 20 feet of excellent 5.9 face climbing - small edges and sidepulls with balancey footwork. An enjoyable change of pace from the typical Seneca corners, flakes, and cracks.
