  • Description 

    A long, casual outing. I'd guess this (or some variation of it) has been done before, but since I've heard nothing of it being previously climbed, I'm listing it as a new route. Worth doing if you're at the crag and want to climb something different. Recommended to be comfortable on moderate run outs on 5.5 terrain for the top.

    Starts on the lowest part of the slab just right of the Tree Route and below Right Face. From the belay perch at the bottom of the slab, climb the low 5th class slab to where Right Face starts, then move up and right to the next crack right of Tree Route on the right edge of that slab block. Climb it up to where it steepens (we setup a belay here). From there, pull left onto the slab block up to a second overlap with a small shrub in the crack just above it. Follow this crack until it ends, then rejoin Right Face and run it out on easier slab to the top bolted anchor of Tree Route.

    From the Tree Route bolted anchor, rap using one 60m to the tree, then rap again using one 60m rope. Use stopper knots! You will probably have to step down a few feet to reach the tree midway.

    Cams from .5 to #5. Multiple in the 2 to 4 Camalot sizes recommended

    I believe this was an old route called Easy Face 5.5, listed in Southern Exposure, or some variation of it.

    Yeah, it's somewhat a variation of Easy Face, or Right Face as it is listed in Chuck Lohn's guide. Not to say "The Webb" hasn't been done before, but I think it is different enough to be worth listing separately. They start and finish about the same, but for the middle 70ft this one climbs the crack out right and Right Face goes up the unprotectable slab between this and Tree Route.
