The Web needs very little introduction. The visual one gets of this diamond as it sits high above the West side of Route 73 is enough to both silence Web neophytes and evoke long diatribes of banter from locals and those who've only visited a few times.
Head North along Route 73 from The New York Thruway (Route 87) into Keene Valley. You will pass Chapel Pond on the left after about 10 minutes of driving.

Though this route is NOT blessed with an inspirational name, it DOES offer some of the finest crack climbing on the cliff: Just don't let the sand run out of your hourglass! A few things distinguish this route from several other routes of similar grade on the cliff--A series of hard/insecure moves off the deck to gain the rest alcove, a deceivingly pumpy traverse crux, and an endurance crux with solid jams.
