Great route. Definitely not a gimme after the first crux ends! Stays interesting to the anchor!

Tried the vertical pillar variation. Candlestick-y and interesting to protect.

Exposure on the left is not too hideous when you get into the corner and stem. Cool route!

NH : *NH Ice and Alpine Climbing : ... : Amphitheater Area

Mellow first pitch with an interesting second pitch finish. With a 70m rope, you can link the 2.

Bad decisions ended up turning part of the chimney into an OW... but powered through. Super exciting.

Corner beneath the roof was wet when we climbed, but still a phenomenal route.

Great for pushing into the 5.10 range. Short but good. Bushy by the anchors...

WV : Seneca Rocks : South End

Killer first pitch. Steep 5.8. Great gear, yes. Not sure if it's a 'light 5.8.' Solid for the grade.
