IN A FEW WORDS
Seneca Rocks is a fin of vertically layered Tuscarora quartzite that rises above the headwaters of the Potomac in West Virginia. The climbs often follow steep cracks and has a marvelous resemblance to a classical Chinese landscape. This is particularly true if there is mist. Senecal was a training ground for U.S. Mountain Forces during WWII as the face of a thousand pitons attests to. The Seneca Rocks Climbing trip is perfect for anyone with an adventurous spirit interested in learning the sport of rock climbing or for those looking to improve on their skills.

Day 1. Welcome to West Virginia!
You'll know that you have arrived once you witness the nearly vertical wall of rock dramtically rising from the valley floor and towering above our heads. Settle in to our cozy campsite locations at the base of the fin and become acquainted with the surrounding trails and scenery until dinner. Over dinner, we will have a round of introductions and a brief orientation to the adventures ahead. Spend the evening relaxing in a hammock or next to a warm campfire.
Day 2: Time to Climb!
Adventure awaits today as we tie in and begin to explore the local routes of the stunning fin of Seneca Rocks. A short approach will warm up our legs before ropping in. Whether it's your first time on a multi-pitch or first time climbing in general, this trip is made for all!

I would recommend BTM for any trip you and your friends want to go on, or to any organization interested in planning a trip... especially if you are interested in "getting out there" and not just stopping at the common tourist spots everyone goes to.
This was hands-down one of the the most exciting, rewarding, and memorable trips I've ever been on! The peace of mind to know that I didn't have to worry about anything was worth every penny. All I had to do was show up. Cody and Lystina took it from there. No stress, no anxiety, no rushing around or wasting time trying to find an activity or a place to eat. I got to sit back, relax, and experience a whole new world that was far beyond my map.
Since I've been back I have recommended these trips to so many people because this company creates these remarkable journeys that allow people to experience the world in a unique way. I can't wait to go on my next expedition with Beyond the Map!
