So on September 21st i am planning a guided trip to Seneca(only four hours from Maryland) with Massey at the Gendarme. I asked for him because he was a great teacher when I got a two day lesson on how to climb years a go. But anyway, he said I can go on multiple routes. I was looking at Green Wall and thought that would be a great first Seneca route to go straight up to the South Summit. It looks like a beautiful corner crack that goes straight up the wall. Are there any other good routes to get to the South summit within 5.8-5.4? Is green wall fun or not? And by the way I won't be doing any leading this time.

Green wall is super rad and super chill for a Seneca 5.7. There are a bunch of good routes that attain the summit within your specified grade range, but honestly you can't go wrong with the one you picked.

Green Wall is super fun. Get on it.

West Pole is probably the best 5.7 at Seneca but its a bit hard for the grade. I'd make that your second route.

Couldn't agree more. West Pole is one of my favorite route's ever. Definitely a bit harder than Green Wall.

Thanks it sounds like I'll stick with Green Wall for my first and I'll look into west pole but im guessing that takes you directly to the South Summit?

Yep and the 5.8 direct finish to West Pole is worth doing IMO.
