Comments: Wow. I'm surprised this doesn't seem to get mentioned with the other classic 10s at Seneca. Awesome, sustained crack climbing for 40' or so, with some thin moves to the anchor over good gear at your feet.

Comments: Starts in the green corner under the triangle shaped small roofy bulge. Maybe 15 RIGHT of pur-plex-ploration. Boulder up to the first small cam placement then make move to a jug. Follow the crack up and right to quartz boulder.

Comments: Really fun climb. This pitch has a little bit of everything.

My 70 meter rope got me down to the ledge about 6 feet up on Triple S. Be careful, because it's close.

Comments: Really fun. If someone is climbing Triple S, ask them to take a photo of you from the top of that route. It would be magazine worthy.

I mostly just came here to say that a 70 meter barely gets you the the shelf about 5 feet up Triple S. Tie knots in your rope, but it will save the hassle of two rappels from the top of CoD.

Comments: Not 5.10. Crack at the top would be cool if it was more than four feet tall.

Comments: Sandbag. Scary to place gear at the start.

Comments: This route is fantastic. Nice no-hands rest about halfway up, so go for it!

Comments: I certainly escaped left... "Running it out on hard 5.10" sounded terrifying, and looked even worse once I was right under it. The cracks taper out and the face looks pretty blank (though I'm sure there's holds... There's always holds!)

Fun little route, didn't feel terribly (read: beautifully) sandbagged like many other Seneca routes.

Comments: Great route. There is a giant death block on the first pitch, which is one of the few chunks of that pitch that isn't covered in lichen. I drew a bunch of x's on it. Don't pull it out, because it would probably kill your belayer, then anyone else waiting for old man's route 200 feet below.

The last pitch is so very nice. Crux is much easier if you are tall.

Would be 4 stars if not for the dirtiness of the first pitch (first being 80 feet off the ground)
