did this route yesterday... fun route but it should have ended 20 feet lower. the top 20 feet is chossy climbing and it doesn't add to the route what-so-ever. also, to the anchors where they currently are, this route is at least 100 feet long. you need about 20 more feet of rope than what is required for Commencement, which is listed as 90 feet long. One last note... not sure where the "R" rating comes from... seemed to take gear the whole way. it takes some small pro (small wires and tiny cams), but this doesn't make it "R" rated. there are routes at Seneca that are considered PG-13 that are more run-out than this route. With all of that being said, it was an awesome route (except for the last 20 feet).

To whoever cleaned my bail gear off this route: did you send? I didn't think anyone ever did this route. It deserves more traffic. Enjoy your new tricams my friend.
