Description 

Follow the corner to the roof and surmount it into the continuing right-leaning, thin crack and the crux. When the difficulty eases, continue in the same right-leaning crack system to the top.

This was established ground-up onsight.

Location 

The base of the cliff can be characterized as having two tiers. The upper, left-hand, tier is the launch pad for Sample Collector and all pitches left of it. Western Web is the first route, as you move right, that starts from the lower tier. You’re aiming for the obvious, right-leaning corner that ends at a small roof. There is an opposing, left-facing corner that arches in to create the same roof (alternate start). We started in the Y-shaped crack, directly below the opposing pair of corners, and traversed into the right-facing corner.

Protection 

Standard rack with plenty of small nuts.
Gear anchor. Walk off left.
