Things to Do in West Virginia

Rock Climbing

Seneca Rocks Climbing School has been offering climbing instruction since 1971. It is the one of the oldest climbing schools on the east coast.  SRCS has taught beginning and experienced climbers alike how to conduct themselves in the safest manner possible while enjoying one of life’s most exhilarating activities rock climbing.

Located in the shadows of Seneca Rocks, West Virginia the Gendarme climbing shop and Seneca Rocks Climbing School are owned and operated by Arthur and Diane Kearns of Winchester, VA.   Both have been avid rock climbers for many years.

SRCS staff are certified outdoor guides and have received extensive training from the American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA), organizations like WMA who provide the Wilderness First Responder certification (WFR), and Leave No Trace (LNT).

SRCS can guide and teach a novice to climb on a rock outcrop at Harman’s.  They have worked with Harman’s to develop an entry level rock climbing adventure in Hopeville Canyon, which is easily accessed from the cabins.
