BETA PHOTO: Topographical map of Witches Back section. Thanks ...


Shady and very tree covered.
Not very crowded, but not secluded either.
Can see the highway from the climbing area.

Unsure of which rock type, but most top outs are slopey and chossy. Good spotting and pads are strongly advised.

Getting There 

From Route 33, get off at Rock Riffle Road in Athens, Ohio.

Depending on which direction you are coming from, you may have to pass back under Route 33. Parking will be a dirt/gravel pull off on the left side of the road. The approach is a steep hike with the mouth starting right at the corner of Rock Riffle Road and the off ramp for Route 33.

The approach is relatively steep and is about a 10 minute hike to the boulder area.
