Top rope at Seneca? Rubbish.

Ecstasy Jr. will save your thighs, the climb is ok, but highly recommended you do it to skip the stair master if it’s empty.
1st pitch of Le gourmet (5.4 watch rope drag) to Front C (5.6 but eats gear so well you can toprope the 2 move 5.6 portion) and finish on Old Man’s is a fun easy way to the top. 2 raps will get you down.
Also either Conn’s East or West, ask around one of them is excellent. Gunsight to South Peak isn’t to be missed either.
Skyline traverse is well worth doing. You can do the first pitch and rap down if you have some extra time at the end of the day. Same with Candy corner. As was said before, wear your helmet especially by area around Candy Corner and Skyline (tons of loose rock in a gully above).

Is green wall 5.4? I remember I really enjoyed that one. Check out the photo. http://outdoors.webshots.com/photo/1074 ... 9993TtHcSf

I think I remember laybacking and stemming the corner, none of that jamming stuff for me.

There's also a really cool two tiered overhang on the west side that's maybe only 5.5 or 5.6. Anybody remember what it's called?..... Sorry, that was West Pole 5.7. Although Seneca grades are generally stiff, I remember this one as dead easy, though big juggy overhangs were always what I liked best.

Christ! Now they're calling Green Wall 5.7, don't listen to me. I was climbing in jungle boots back then, no chalk, no cams. I guess I had no idea if things were easy or hard. Still, one of my partners that day was a young woman who couldn't have been over 5'1", a beginner, climbing in hiking boots, and she didn't have any trouble with it.

Conn's East is the classic of the two Conn's routes. Greenwall was a 5.6 back in the day when I did it but might be 5.7 now. The double overhang is Westpole. Also a 5.6 in the day but now 5.7.

Kinda different than the with a man, but goat sex is a-ok in my book. There are a bunch of quality goats at 5'4" and shorter. I agree with you, Day. I have been doing some real buttlicking at the low end. I spent a major amount of time trying to figure out where to put it in the female goat. goats is simply spectacular. Way erotic. Green fungus is growing in my underwear. I can't recall the noun, there's a butt crack on the south end that goes up and then I go up my little pup tent is superb. I call my butt crack a 5.3 chimney on the back side that's got that exciting step over at the top of the first pitch.

Herb and rastamen are a bunch of Needles in South seas, too. That's a cool place. Twenty or thirty young hoods sticking straight out at me the ground and going up way up. Big quartz crystals singing to my head which is thicker than the rock.

Climbing are good.
