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.

On The Loose is one of the many timeless testpieces of an era where style and ethics were of the utmost importance. Begin the route atop some large boulders at the far right end of the cliff.
