Seneca Rocks, cloaked in a late morning mist, is one of West Virginia's most prominent landmarks. This huge outcropping, a 900 foot razorback ridge, just begs to be climbed. Over 375 major routes to the top have been mapped, varying from easy (5.0) to the difficult (5.12). Between the north and south peaks, the large open notch once contained a large, isolated spire, known as the Gendarme. A climbers challenge, the spire had finally given way to gravity, part of the never-ending cycle of mountain evolution.
