The Web needs very little introduction. The visual one gets of this diamond as it sits high above the West side of Route 73 is enough to both silence Web neophytes and evoke long diatribes of banter from locals and those who've only visited a few times.
Head North along Route 73 from The New York Thruway (Route 87) into Keene Valley. You will pass Chapel Pond on the left after about 10 minutes of driving. Start looking for a small pull-off on the right afte about 1/8 of a mile next to a guardrail beneath the cliff. Alternately, you can park across the street from the cliff in the campground area parking lot.

Esthesia 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a NY : Adirondacks : ... : The Spider's Web
es-th-sia (n)--"The ability or capacity for sensation or feeling; sensitivity."Rather ironic, considering this route often leaves a climber's forearms numb and devoid of feeling!Just to the left of Slim Pickins is the exquisite outside corner of Esthesia. Marked by the 5 to 6 inch wide overhanging corner, this line epitomizes all that is essential for classic Dacks climbing: Desperately pumpy, intimidating climbing with almost impeccable gear (read: a slight runout on pumpy terrain.)...[more] Browse More Classics in NY
