Comments: Matt the one to the left was orginially called char i think. then it broke, got resent, and was named f#$k char. Then it broke, and i think char sent it again, and might've renamed it something else, but then it broke again, and now is unsent i think.

Comments: Pretty far down there. I think as the trail sort of fades away it's in a jumble of rocks to your left.

Comments: This thing is so rad. One of the best cracks in Pennsylvania. And it's 5.11. Also, if you don't want to lay it back some offwidth technique can be applied. But yeah that block behind you is concerning for sure.

Comments: I thought the v chimney at the top added to an already fantastic route. Not dirty at all, protects well, enjoyable and exposed stemming. Five star route for sure.

Comments: kind of the arete and the face to the right of the arete. The face on the left side is another problem that's supposed to be V5 where you get established and throw for the lip, but i've never been able to figure that one out.

Comments: Corporate Strategies. It was V7 then it broke. Not sure now, but harder than V7.

Comments: Came off about a month ago. Casablanca still goes, possibly a touch harder. Cassanova is now an open project.

Comments: We're definitely putting our heads together trying to decide what to do here. It would be a shame to lose this thing.

Comments: As is the case for Casablanca, use extreme caution if you're looking to climb this problem. The large flake used for the starting holds could break off very soon. Wouldn't create much of a fall but it's probably pretty heavy.

Comments: I had another wall in a barn then it turned out that barn was falling over so had to move it to this barn, of which our occupation is tentative at best, so eventually I may need to find a more permanent home for all my holds. I miss my garage wall.

Comments: It gets V5 in the guide. Might be on the softer side of Coopers V5 but it's pretty good.

Comments: No Moss, V9? I think there's something in between the two but it might either be an open project or dumb. No Moss starts in the crimp seam on the far right of the Karmic Power boulder.

Comments: yeah no doubt. although i imagine that'd up the grade a bit.

Comments: yeah i've been on it with no success. The start broke recently, not sure if anyone's done it since. It was getting V7 before, it may be a bit harder than that now.

Comments: Gets 11 in the newer guidebook(s). Can't speak to it's actual difficulty as i've never tried it, but i feel like .10c at Seneca IS 11. Calm down i'm joking.

Comments: on 11/11/13 the painful tooth on the high right hand start hold broke. Establishing on the climb, which i think was the crux before, is now significantly harder.

Comments: Yeah i thought this one was slightly harder than Legacy, albeit shorter. I believe the .11c rating is leftover from Cater's guide. Could be wrong, haven't looked at that gem in a while.

Comments: My god i hope soon. Me and Levich are going to Indian Creek/Joes Valley/Wherever else we end up in March '14. I think the 15th to the 22nd. It'd be cool if you could make it out. Kelly's pics from the Voo were sick, looks like you guys had fun.

And just to keep things relevant; you can't give Hydroman .10d, it's not that hard. You're contradicting yourself. :) .11a all the way.

Comments: I agree with the great pro part except for maybe the bottom section leading up to that first jug. I know a few a people who ate dirt on this one (yours truly included) getting through that first part. After that it's good clean fun.

Comments: The crux is kinda tricky but i wouldn't call it V2-V3. That'd put the climb at 5.11. I found a tri-cam protected that part adequately as well, but i didn't have any small cams on me when i did it, likely the .3 works just as well.

Comments: Wondering about the grade on this. Horst's book has it at 11c R, and it's on here at .10a. I don't think i agree with either. Definitely not R, great gear below the crux (wouldn't want it to blow), and no part of it felt .11c, but i also thought it was considerably harder than .10a. No matter the grade it's a great climb, highly recommended.

Comments: Gus was the picture snapper on this one. If you move to the right of the block beside the bolts you can get some great pictures. Kinda scary hanging out there but worth it.
