There was a time when you couldn’t open a climbing magazine without seeing ads featuring some wannabe hardperson clinging to the sheer overhanging rock face that is the Web. Sure it’s about 25 feet long and 100 yards from the parking lot and picnic tables, but something drew the early ’90s sport climber crowd to this route like long-lost relatives to lottery winners. Greasy slopers and crimps make up this climb, polished not merely by overuse but by virtue of the slick quartzite they were hewn from, by nature.
