Rock Climbing at Seneca Rocks - October 2008


Mike and I had so much fun at Seneca Rocks the previous Columbus day weekend, we decided to do it again this year. This time it was all about pushing harder routes and seeing what our limit was. We definitely found our limit on Triple S (5.8+)

We climbed on Saturday:
Ecstasy (5.7) - Clean
West Pole (5.7) - Clean

We climbed on Sunday:
Neck Press (5.7) to Critter Crack (5.7) - Clean
Crispy Critter (5.7) - Clean
Triple S (5.8+) - Took one little fall when my right foot blew in the crack. Mike took a little sissy rest on the rope.
Le Gourmet (5.4) 1st pitch - Clean
