The Web was first climbed by Chris Hill in 1987 and climbs the steep Supremacy Rock in Eldorado Canyon.

MountainProject.com says this about the famous 5.13b, “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 1990s 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.”
