BETA PHOTO: First section, right-facing dihedral


The crack starts in a right facing dihedral that gives many edges and leads to a shelf half way through the route. Then you switch to a left facing dihedral that takes you past an Xed block that needs a big crowbar...coming soon.


This route is just left of the shorter crack "Congolese Crescendo" and the face between is a great top rope.


Good pro from .5 to #2s with some runners required will get you to chains.

The loose "death block(s) have been removed by Darren Knezek. Thanks! The climb is now much better than before! This line climbs much better than it looks and has a great deal of movement w/o any expected rope drag. Well worth doing!
