Description

The south side of Seneca faces away from route 33 and is considerably quieter. There is little shade and with the right weather it can be climbable year round.

Getting There

The east face of the south peak can be approached three ways: you can hike up the east face trail from Roy Gap Road, you can climb up one of several routes on the southern end, or the east face can be reached by scrambling around luncheon ledge on the south end of the formation. This scramble involves several forth class sections and has been the site of several fatalities.
