Follows the fun, steep, obvious inside corner just right of Congo Corner. A slightly overhanging and immensely juggy start gives way to lower angle climbing with good layback moves. Holds and gear are good throughout, but the sequence takes a little figuring out. Gear/thread anchor at top.

4 out of 5 stars Very high quality grit route

This route has it all- bouldery start, jamming and laybacking in the middle, and a nice mantle at the end. Really varied and fun.
