Comments: I'd been looking at this route for a while and finally tried it yesterday. However, because of my aversion to ground falls, I immediately backed off the start, which is a kind of alcove/corner/crack/chimney/whatever that leads to a ledge with a large triee.

Avoid the older section of Yokum's Motel at all costs. Appalachia Cabins, just north of Seneca Rocks, has a row of motel rooms that are much nicer (complete with micro wave, toaster, fridge, and coffee maker) and cost the same.
When they say that the ratings on Seneca Rocks climbs are stiff, ... more >>
