Getting There 

The Bell Wall is the first steep, clean wall and it contains the obvious namesake formation of The Bell - perhaps the best (quintessential) climb at Seneca. This can be approached via lots of hiking and scrambling, but it is perhaps easier to approach by climbing through the Gunsight notch from the opposite side at the far end of Broadway Ledge. The Euro Wall is the next wall over and can be approached directly via some steep scrambling.
