Description

It is a treat for any rock climber to scale the Seneca Rocks. Located in West Virginia and part of the famous Appalachian mountain range, this enormous rock formation offers a variety of fantastic walls and routes from which to climb them.

On this full day, private trip, you will get to spend hours scaling the Seneca Rocks to its summit. The approach from the trailhead to the rocks is very short, only approximately 10 to 25 minutes. As a result, the climb begins almost immediately after you arrive.

When it comes to how you climb the Seneca Rocks, there are many different ways. Those ways include trad climbing, top rope climbing, mixed climbing and multi-pitch climbing. And because the lengths of the walls ranges from 30 to 300 meters, and from 1 to 6 pitches, like chess moves on the board, there is an abundance of options. Furthermore, due to that variety, no matter your skill level, regardless if you are a beginner or expert, we will find the perfect climbing route fro you.

We like to keep our private groups small. We do that because we believe it is important to provide quality and attentive instruction, as opposed to general observation. As a result, we are confident that whenever you have questions, or encounter difficulties, we will be there to help you and assist you in any possible. Hence ensuring you have a safe, fun and memorable climbing experience.

Would you like to enjoy one of the most famous spots for rock climbing in the United States? Then send a request and join us on this full day, private trip at the Seneca Rocks. We know you’ll have a fantastic experience.

About the guide

guide profile img

My name is Grant, and I serve as the head guide for the Blue Ridge Mountain Guides. We are based in Virginia, where I grew up climbing rock and ice, constantly searching for my next big adventure.

While I enjoy all types of climbing, I have to admit that I favor ice and trad. As much as I love climbing, I am equally dedicated to teaching. I have always had a great passion for sharing my love of this sport and the mountains with others. As a teacher, I am laid back, patient and adaptive in my teaching style. I strive to convey information and skills to my students in a way that easy to understand and retain.

I am certified by the American Mountain Guides Association as a Rock Instructor, Single Pitch Instructor and Climbing Wall Instructor. I hold a Wilderness First Responder Certification and am also an AIARE Level I Avalanche Course Instructor and Leave No Trace Trainer.

Blue Ridge Mountain Guides is also an AMGA SPI Assistant Provider.

When it gets too cold to climb back home, you can usually find me ice climbing and skiing in Utah, New York, Vermont and New Hampshire.
