  • Description 

    The Congo has sandstone climbing in a wilderness setting. It is a good winter spot protected from the wind.

    Special thanks to the people involved with helping develop the area such as Kirk Miller, Ken Trout, Henry Luedtke, Jimmy Menendez, Peter Holben, and Joey Valenzuela.

    Getting There 

    This is up the hill from Buoux Montana. The first route is just uphill from gold shuts.
