Besides my brother Larry, this was the first time I had friends willing to come with me up to the buttresses. It's a major pain in the ass to getting to this crack. I thought climbers should see what is here. Google green chasm n.h. images and there are good examples of the rock quality inside the gully besides this crack on the east buttress's face.
We discussed solutions to speeding up the process for us getting there. We came up with the idea that an established fixed rope line, the entire length of the slabs would work best. We don't own such a line and the waterfall way up the slab we did, isn't right for a rope line. An excellent place to have a rope line is left of where we began, up a steeper friction climb straight up to ours being a diagonal approach. Should make the required rope length somewhat less needed. This slab will be a great climb after much bolting.
Ask around and please comment if you find any first ascent party, parties anywhere that have gone up on this side of Webster Mt. to rock climb. This side of the mountain is hard to beat a path all the way up to the top.
It may be best for the hands to wear aid climbing gloves on this crack. Horizontal bongs would fit in it but would be in the way of free climbing. #five and possibly #6 friends would work or walking the dog with the one friend that fit best would work. I got stuck on a crack that only fit one friend for 60ft and after that and probably before we called it walking the dog. It wasn't fun.

Right side of the first buttress above the slab. It might be beneficial to wear gloves climbing this crack.
