Description

This face climb takes a beautiful line on the East face of the Witch. A bit sharp with awesome technical crimping  past 7 shiny bolts. Just before the crux you get to clip a bolt, but it wouldn’t be the Needles if getting to the next one didn’t have just a tiny bit of spice. At the last bolt traverse left to an easy hand crack to the top. If you are sending the face you very well could bring no cams, the crack is no harder than 5.8ish, but a few hand size down to fingers can all be placed and make it nice and cozy. 

Location

On the incredible East face of the Witch. Right across from Titanic, hence the name. Reach the base by scrambling the Low 5th class chimney between the Warlock and the Witch. The route starts already quite high on the face. A nice pair of bolts sit near the base of Iceberg allowing the belayer to anchor in. Luckily the first bolt is an easy clip as well. 

Protection

7 QD’s & optional 1x fingers-hand size cams. 1 to 3 cams is plenty.
