I've never climbed on Mt. Webster but several years ago, while shopping at Lahouts in Laconia, an employee suggested I try this route. He even scribbled its name on a piece of register machine paper, which I still have.
We parked at the pullout opposite of Willey's Slide parking and walked east along the road. At the 45.6 marker we headed down and crossed the Saco River. We didn't see any trail so we just kept walking 'up'. After about 15-20 minutes Nuno found the trail with cairns and orange tape tied to trees. This brought us along the drainage gully. This gully got steeper and as we neared the base of the route, there were larger boulders, some of which were loose. I'm not gonna lie, it was a tough approach. But it was even tougher going downhill, especially with tired, crampy feet.

A few more boulders to scramble over
The start of Lost In The Sun route. We arrived at the base of the climb and there were two backpacks there. We had a little bit to drink and eat and geared up, and spotted two climbers making their rappel down. They had just climbed Lost In The Sun.
