Webber Seam

V4, Boulder, 13 ft,  Avg: 3.3 from 13 votes
FA: unknown
Pennsylvania > South Central PA > Whiskey Springs > Webber Boulder

Description

The classic area moderate. A striking, obvious line up a seam in the center of the freestanding Webber boulder.

Start matched on a thin undercling with good feet. Move left to the seam. Crimp and sidepull up until you can grab a perfect quartz crystal crimp on the face to the right of the seam. With poor feet, make a long move to the lip and ultimately to the jug 6" behind the lip. Top out with ease.

Location

Located off the ridge proper, down and to the right as you enter the Entrance Area. The problem is on a large, square, freestanding boulder about 50 yards down the hill.

Protection

Several pads. There is a sharp, jutting rock just behind the landing zone, and a fall from the last move will likely send you right onto it.

[Hide Comment] Great problem, most likely one of, if not the best problem at Whiskey. Can be as little tricky to figure out the beta, but once you got it, well, you got it. Easy as cake. Nov 23, 2008

[Hide Comment] One of the best problems at Whiskey. Easy to protect and great landing zone. May 10, 2010
[Hide Comment] Judging from videos I've seen, I believe a flake used for right foot at the bottom has broken off. Problem felt significantly harder than a V4. Probably not doable for anyone projecting V4 problems. Aug 23, 2015
