I’m not quite sure why I never put this video up on the blog.
Seneca Rocks is a great climbing spot about 3.5 hours west of Washington DC, in West Virginia, that offers some of the closest multi-pitch trad climbing. Michelle and I had been wanting to go for a while, but needed someone to take us because we neither had trad gear nor trad lead experience.
Our friend Nick was kind enough to offer to take us out there, and we immediately jumped at the opportunity. I had purchased a GoPro HD Helmet camera just a few days prior, so this was it’s maiden voyage. I used the strap that allows you to wear the camera very much like a headlamp, and put together this short video.
If memory serves me correct, we did a climb called “Green Wall” (or something like that), which is in the 5.8-5.9 range (I think the second pitch is classified as a 5.9).
