Description

The fourth edition of this guide is the only comprehensive rock climbing guidebook to Seneca Rocks West Virginia. The area is in a remote part of West Virginia.  Still, it is also easily accessible from many of the major metropolitan areas of the east coast including metro Washington DC, Pittsburg, Philadelphia, and New York.

Seneca has the east's only major summit accessed only by technical climbing. Modern technical climbing started in the 1930's making it one of the oldest climbing areas in the United States. The guide describes much of the area's rich history, including its use as a training ground for troops that fought in the mountains of Italy during WWII. It is also one of the east coast's most important training grounds for the style of climbing known as traditional climbing.

The guide describes over 513 routes and variations on seven major cliff features.

The book uses drone photography to capture the otherwise difficult-to-describe cliff faces. 170 photographs are found throughout the book. Expanded sections help the user find climbing routes and descent options more efficiently. The book also helps visitors find camping, food, guiding services, and other necessities.

Front and back cover flaps are provided as bookmarks.
