Description 

The Necromancer Needle is a subsummit located below the The Witch proper. It seems mostly ignored as the majority of the routes are marked as R/X in the guidebook. That said,Silver Threads is a fine route waiting for those who have already polished off the more popular classics.


Getting There 

The best approach is to walk down the Witch/Sorcerer gully past the ledge for Pit and The Pendulum/Witch Doctor.

When you've done the moderate standards on The Witch ( Igor Unchained, Innersanctum, and Airy Interlude ) and you're looking for the perfect way to start a summer day (read: way too hot in the sun), an adventuresome three pitch route awaits you. Silver Threads lies just lower than the bottom edge of The Witch (Pit and the Pendulum/Witch Doctor).
