The North side of Seneca that faces away from route 33. Gets Sun until at least noon, however this face is slightly more shaded than the east face of the south peak due to the tree cover in the summer months.

Getting There
Hike up the east face trail from Roy Gap Road (standard approach). Or you can hike up the trail to the visitor's overlook and come down the back side of Seneca.

Getting There 

The East face trail from Roy Gap road may be the longest approach at Seneca, but it's well worth the walk.

Desperado 5.9 5c 17 VI HVS 5a  WV : Seneca Rocks : North Peak, East Face
This is a fantastic 5.9! Climb up the face to reach the overhang and then traverse Right to reach a left facing corner (crux). Follow the corner to a large ledge. The traverse to the right is the business and coolest part of the climb. Well protected and exciting! ...[more]   Browse More Classics in WV
