Description 

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.

From this point if you continue straight up, you will join the finish of Great Impostor. Instead, place some good gear and head right and up aiming for a large ledge with a tree. The last 20 Ft is much easier than the rest of the route, but there's not much gear. Although the last section is somewhat overhanging, you are on really positive holds, just ...[more]   Browse More Classics in WV
