Witches Tower, Northwest Buttress, Cashmere Crags. In late September, Rick Piercy and I climbed this section of good granite. From the northwest col we started 20 feet right of the buttress, ascended obvious twin cracks and went left to the buttress. A wide jam-crack led to a wide belay ledge. From there we climbed large friction slabs to the summit. NCCS II, F7.
