Private Guiding at Seneca Rocks

Seneca has major walls facing in all four compass directions, many of which can only be accessed by other climbs or small ledge systems. This complicated vertical environment can make hiring a private guide attractive even to the most experienced climber.  Your private guide will have a wealth of local knowledge,  allowing you to get a memorable high-mileage day.  Whether you want to bag your first technical summit or second the harder lines of Seneca, our guides can give you what you need. We recommend private guiding for:

  • Experienced climbers who are unfamiliar with Seneca and want to hit the classics.
  • Experienced climbers who have a dream route at Seneca that is beyond their lead ability.
  • Less experienced climbers who want to climb some multi-pitch but don’t have the time for a two day course.
  • Climbers looking for customized one on one instruction.

Private Guide

Private Guiding is conducted entirely outdoors.  Our guides are experts at customizing experiences for our guests.  A day of private guiding could include lots of mileage, learning, or a combination thereof.  It’s your day out, make the most of it by letting us know your goals ahead of time.  Your guide will take that information and create a custom climbing experience that will be remembered for a long time.

All necessary equipment is provided.  If you have your own equipment and wish to use it, you can after your guide has determined its’ appropriateness and safe condition.
