Alphonse climbs a large dihedral and traverses left to a stance near an overhang. Pitch 2 climbs the overhang and goes for the top. Aside from one move on the overhang, Alphonse is mostly 5.6-7. The belay is one of the worst at the Gunks, so many people do it as one really long pitch with double ropes to avoid rope drag.
