DescriptionWebster Slabs are the series of large slabs on the right-hand side (going from Bartlett to Breton Woods) of Rt 302 just beyond the Willy House and before Willie Slide. I've numbered the AREAs 1 > 4 so they "sort" in L-to-R order.
As you look at the slabs from the Willy House (or better, from the Willie Slide parking turn out), I've called the slide on the right the "Main Slab" because it is probably the most frequented by a factor of about 5. About 600 yds to the left is the physically largest slide which I've called the Left Slab. A 30-40 ft deep, 50-60 ft wide, gash filled with trees and bushes divides this from a slab I chose to call the "Far Left" slab. This has two routes that probably should see more traffic. Although slightly lower grade, they compare favorably with the routes on the "Main Slab" that get a reasonable number of ascents each year.
Getting There"Far Left Slab" and "Left Slab" pretty much have the same approach which is given in GETTING THERE for the "Far Left Slab".
"Main slab" has its own approach, given in the GETTING THERE for the "Main Slab".
Unless you run marathons with 25lb packs, figure it will probably take 45-60 min to reach the slab of your choosing.
While I'm sure it has been done, it's probably not advisable to try to go from Main Slab to Left Slab via a "high route".
