Description

The Webster/ Becker is a variation to the first three pitches of the Original Route that was first climbed by then-Colorado Springs climbers Ed Webster and Bryan Becker during one of several visits to Northern Arizona in the late 70’s. Their experience climbing on the soft sandstone in the Garden of the Gods served them well in dealing with the poor rock on the first pitch.

Pitch 1: Easy but dicey climbing leads up the best cracks in poor rock, shifting right to a small ledge. From the ledge follow the steepening crack in better rock to a belay on the Fort Apache Limestone ledge.

Pitch 2: Climb the bulging, wide crack above (5.10), which widens into a chimney and eventually joins the Original Route in the 4th Pitch chimney. Follow that route to the summit of the second tower.
