Good long easy first pitch


A classic moderate outing for the area. It can be ascended many different ways along it's entire width. Be prepared for great scenery! The west face of Mt. Webster is one of the truly beautiful and mean looking mountain faces in the northeast.


The climb is accessed by following a path just to the left of the big boulder up through the woods, across the railroad track, and further up the hill to the base of the climb. Ascend as desired. Conditions can usually be discerned from the base and bailing off to the woods is usually possible. Descent is through the woods along the slide on either side.

I lost a GOPRO camera on the descent trail (climber's left) of the slide on 31/DEC/2013. Please message me if you find it and I'll buy you a few cases of beers/etc.
