|North Peak, East Face
Climb the broken face up to a steep right-leaning crack in orange rock. Follow the crack to it's end at a horizontal. Steeper than in looks.
Starts 20 ft left of the end of the North Peak. Look for the obvious crack in the middle of the face.
Standard Seneca rack.

Despite being short, this is a fantastic climb.
This is one of the few climbs at Seneca where you can safely put up a top rope. Beginning leaders should take care, as the crack does a wild zig zag that requires careful placement of gear to avoid rope drag.

Stiff for the grade.
Started at the crack to the left, which I followed up to the horizontal crack to the right that forms the bottom of the "Z". Find placements down low where you can to protect the mid section.
Upper "Z" section is quite a ride and protects well.

CAREFUL placement of gear. About three years back a woman was killed leading this when her gear pulled and she hit her head. It is steep and close to the hard ground.

Saves its crux for one good punch at the end. Pumpy, but reasonable for Seneca 5.9.
