Description

The southern end of Seneca consists of several buttresses of broken quartzite. Ecstacy (5.7), one of Seneca's premier routes is located on the south west end.

The cave area contains several of Seneca's most difficult routes, such as Fine Young Cannibals (5.13), and only bouldering at Seneca.

Several classic routes including Candy corner (5.5), Ye Gods and Little Fishes (5.8), and Drop Zone (5.11a) are located at the far east end.

It is worth noting that Skyline Traverse (5.3) is located immediately above these routes and rockfall from parties on it is quite common. A helmet might protect you from the smaller stuff, but it may be advisable to avoid the area because bigger stuff (football sized) is occasionally set lose.

Getting There

Hike up Roy Gap road, the Southern End is immediately on your left.
