Bell Wall from the start of West Pole.

Getting There 

The Bell Wall is the first steep, clean wall and it contains the obvious namesake formation of The Bell - perhaps the best (quintessential) climb at Seneca. This can be approached via lots of hiking and scrambling, but it is perhaps easier to approach by climbing through the Gunsight notch from the opposite side at the far end of Broadway Ledge. The Euro Wall is the next wall over and can be approached directly via some steep scrambling.

Madmen Only ascends the obvious steep crack in a right-facing corner formed by a giant flake at the right side of the Bell Wall. Finally a Seneca route with big, solid gear and burly moves! Ascend this crack until a cruxy move that steps right and continues to a bolted anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in WV
