Description 

This exciting Congo Corner edition is a stiff lead! Do not be sucked in unknowingly to its initial 9+ moves. Climb through those edgy face moves to the short crack. Jam up this to the second bolt. Delicately work through some small under clings and traverse left. Be rewarded by a "thank God hold to clip the next bolt. Move up and right to clip the fifth and take a big breath. The BIG crux move is followed by small edges on good face, thus avoiding the corner on the right. This is a VERY technical line throughout!

Location 

Just right of Oranguterror and shares the last three bolts and anchor.

Protection 

Twelve QDs and runners for the two bolt anchor.

beautiful face climbing. It's too bad that corner is so close to the right but quality none the less. I'll be back for this one..
