As of June 2017, the trail and parking are closed from 4 PM Friday through 7 AM Monday. Details
Due to overcrowding and private land issues, the town of Keene and local landowners have come to a compromise regarding the parking on Owls Head Lane, and use of the trail to Owls Head Mountain, which crosses private land. The parking and trail are hereby closed on weekends, from 4 PM Friday through 7 AM Monday. The trail will be permanently closed at the end of the 2017 hiking season.
DescriptionA route which seems like the name "Wiessner" should be attached to it. This route features a flared chimney, which can seep. It can be wet in the morning and totally dry in the afternoon on a sunny day, though, and is a worthwhile route for those who enjoy chimneys and such.
Start up the flaring, widening offwidth/squeeze chimney until you reach a ceiling above the alcove formed by the chimney. Step climbers left and pull over the ceiling. Then, utilize a ledge and undercling flake to move a few feet left to a crack. Then, head up a crack system to top out on the ledges beneath the summit.
LocationA few feet to the climbers right of a left-rising 4th class ramp which cuts across the cliff.
