The cave from the right side.
Overhung sport climbing respite from the traditional ethic of the rest of Seneca. Some hard, well-bolted lines on generally sound rock. Gets some sun in the morning, but on hot days is a good place to seek shelter from the sun. Rarely see another party.
Prominent cave on the South End, visible from the road on the walk in.

Interesting and thoughtful climbing down low leads to some a powerful crux and big moves up high on the cleaner face. Definitely worth doing for the 5.12 climber looking to break out of the funky trad mold of a typical Seneca day....[more] Browse More Classics in WV
