Description

The Southern Pillar is located across Roy Gap Road from the South and North Peaks. It is shaded until early afternoon. Although some of the shorter routes are shaded by trees all Day.

The quartzite of the southern pillar is comparable to the rest of Seneca. However, like all of the formations in the valley, the extreme ends of the formations contain poorer rock and routes such as Gerphart-Dufty (5.7) have been the site of many accidents.

Other classic routes on the Southern Pillar include Roy-Gap Chimneys (5.6) and Climb and Punishment (5.9).
