The hike into this area is a little longer but much more secluded and use. If you want to get away from the crowds, this is the place.

Getting There 

Take the Seneca Rocks hiking trail. Hike about 1.5 miles up towards the observation deck area on North Peak until you see the half-way marker and look for a trail on the left. Follow the trail south into the woods down to the lower slab area.

Autumn Fire

Autumn Fire 5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- 24 E4 6a  WV : Seneca Rocks : Lower Slabs
This is a really fun route to the right of Scuttle. Easier face climbing through the opening moves to some small crack features with a few big moves on thin feet (crux), and then on to easier ground for the finish....[more]   Browse More Classics in WV

Anyone know what the sport route just right of Tips is? 4 or five bolts, looks like it might be designed as a mixed route? I didn't have time to get on it today, but it looked pretty fun. Anyone know anything about it? I can't find it here or in the guide.

The guidebook and description are confusing. While hiking up to observation deck, look for boulder and small unmarked trail that veers off to the right. This will take you directly to the Scuttle area.

The trail to the Lower Slabs is off to the right.
