Description 

A.K.A. - These are Not the KGB You're Looking For

KGB tackles the right side of the Hidden Wall shield before turning the corner into the Iron Curtain. Start by climbing a short crack to gain a comfortable ledge below the first bolt. Due to the nature of the route, a stick clip can alleviate a ground fall on this ledge. Things get real immediately as the KGB throws you into a hard boulder problem(power crux) that can either be tech super crimps, or dead-point pocket/ side pull finesse, ending around the third bolt. About half way up there is a good rest rail before tackling the upper face. Although the power is needed down low, KGB keeps your head in the game by continuing with intriguing high-step and reachy moves all the way to the anchors.

This route has been a long time in the making, and Originally envisioned in 2014 by Lynn/Stoner, but a teaching job out of town had Lynn taken by the secret police.
