The Threat


Interesting and thoughtful climbing down low leads to some a powerful crux and big moves up high on the cleaner face. Definitely worth doing for the 5.12 climber looking to break out of the funky trad mold of a typical Seneca day.


Left side of the cave, skirting just outside it's edge. 2nd route to the left of Predator. Start with a few technical moves up a dihedral to gain the first bolt, then follow the bolt line up and right, pulling onto the face up high.


7 bolts to 2 bolt anchor

I strongly suspect this route was stolen from Rifle Mountain Park. This route has steep technical climbing to a powerful dynamic crux (with a kneebar rest beforehand). Combined with the solid looking modern hardware, these facts suggest this route does not actually belong at Seneca.
