Description Suggest change


This line starts under an old Eric DeCaria line that, as of time of writing, isn't finished.  The Alt-Right, alternatively, takes a line of small, sharp crimps that goes right of the previous project.  The result is another worthy, hard line on the Wicked Crag.  You'll want to bring your crimp, and maybe more importantly skin, A-game for this pitch that offers a lot of crimping on fingernail small, sometimes sharp holds.  

Stick clip the first bolt.  A V6 boulder problem off the deck are probably the hardest moves of the route.  Small, tedious feet and hard crimping get you to a rest and second bolt clip.  Caution, though totally safe, the second bolt is a little higher than you'd like it to be.  This is because the boulder problem affords little room for clipping - totally safe with an attentive belayer.  Continue up through the overlapping undercling rail to the 'ghost-match' hole.  From the ghost-match move left and up to a good stance and rest.  Come off the rest to a huge four foot deadpoint to a sloping ledge.  Keep it together and you're clipping the chains on a good stance.
