|The Wicked Crag

This a great technical line with wicked thin moves. If you like difficult face climbing, you will dig this.
This line runs up the recessed vertical portion of the Wicked Crag, between the two giant overhanging features.
Starts up a slab that quickly rears up to a vertical face. Ultra thin, bouldery moves lead through the first 5 bolts to a height of about 40 feet.The thin section is well-protected and the clips are quite reasonable considering how thin the climbing is.
After the 5th bolt, the climbing eases up, but things remain dicey - 5.11 moves lead up through a 10 foot runout to the 6th bolt.Then 11-/10+ moves lead through similar runouts to the anchor. The line keeps you engaged and (in my case) pumped all the way to the anchors.
8 bolts to anchors at 70 feet

If you care to be picky about such things, the F.F.A. was Eric D.
Originally thought to be 13a and quickly down-rated after successive ascents to 12d, and again dropped to 12b after brushings and years of ascents made those razor-blade crimps as "big" as they now are!
