Starting up Witchy Woman


Follow the wide crack until it ends at a horizontal, then climb straight up a short slab to reach a diagonal ramp. Step left a few feet, then climb straight up to a tiny overlap. Pull the overlap (crux) and follow big holds, stepping left to finish up the middle of the face. The route seems improbable from below in several spots, but hidden holds and pockets make it both easy and well protected.


Start by climbing Joe's Route (4th or easy 5th, 150') to the prominent pine tree on the right skyline. The route starts at a wide crack about 20' feet left of the pine.


Standard rack to 3"; pine tree with rap chain and ring at the top.

The line shown for this climb in the book Rock Climbing New England is a long way to the left of the actual route.
