+1 what brian said. I visit seneca often because of the alpinesque environment. Great feel to the place. The west face on south peak isn't bad. Proof is: I've climbed up and down senecas south peak and never once pulled loose rock! The most dangerous area is where ye gods and candy corner are. Avoid there (unless your routes there...) and you'll have a fine time.

There on a crowded day? Learn the keyholes and link ups and there is always something free that you'll like on one face or the other for sure.

Seneca's great if trad climbing is your thing. If you like to clip bolts then NRG is just down the road. Bill Kirby

Seneca is fun when it's not raining, hot, or humid, on the annual fine day. TWK

I lived in Falls Church for about a year and climbed at ET Rockville (I'm a fan, it's a great gym) twice a week in the evenings. It really wasn't bad getting there. I just climbed a little later. Usually it took about 25 minutes in the car.
I always enjoyed Carderock and Great Falls. While they are not awesome, you'll get a good workout, meet some great people and enjoy the scenery. There is good movement to be had, and your footwork WILL improve.
