Description 

First route to the right of the black waterstreak in the center of the cliff. KGB shares a common start with Freak Brothers (12c). Begin by traversing a shelf left. Pull past a bulge and climb pockets and edges to the chains. Pumpy and a good endurance trainer.

Protection 

7 bolts to anchor

A really good route, my favorite at the wall so far. I'd recommend taping your right ankle for the start- its a bit sharp.

Total endurance fest, probably low in the grade, but i'll take it!

An excellent line, probably the best quality route I did on this trip. But to call it a 5.12a is a bit of a fluff grade. 5.11d would seem to be more appropriate; even at that, not the hardest for that grade.
