This is the only girdle traverse of any of Seneca's faces. There is a possible escape by climbing out of the black gulley to the top.
#1-3. Climb Ecstasy through the second pitch. Climb Simple J Malarky - Ecstasy Connection.
#4. Traverse up and right aiming for the bottomless black gulley and a belay. (50 ft.)
#5. Cross the gulley and move across the Totem Buttess. Climb down to the Tony's Nightmare belay. (60ft.)
#6. Finish on Tony's Nightmare and Skyline Traverse.


Start location same as Ecstasy

An interesting, if contrived route. The only "new" territory on it was P4's traverse.
