|North Peak, East Face
If you come to the North East face and you can lead Seneca 5.8, this is the climb to do! Climb up to a large ledge and trend Left near a tree. At this point, head back Right to access the beautiful right leaning fingers to hands crack. Gear is a little skimpy to reach the tree (5.6) but from this point on it's G rated.
This is the first obvious route you come to when approaching the North East Face when approaching the East face from Roy Gap road.
Gear < 2". Nuts and tri-cams are helpful.

Great love it, to me it was hard for its grade as is all of Seneca. Funny thing is people say the same to me about the Platte. So I guess what you know will always be easier

A bit run out at the bottom to gain the tree, but you can you sew it up there after.
As of 16 September 2012, there is no bee hive with which to contend.

It's sooo goood! Best rock quality at Seneca? You decide. Oh yeah the traverse at the start is pretty spicy. You can get a marginal placement (small nut or c3).
