Steep face. Climb up trending right to the second bolt. After this make a tricky left traverse towards the 3rd bolt. Continue on up with moves left and right all the way to the anchors.

This climb seems fairly stiff for 5.8.


Located right of the two short climbs on the left side of the Great Wall of China


7 bolts, 2 mussy hooks anchor

Pretty pumpy for 5.8 and a little sporty to the first bolt in my opinion.

5.8+?...It's either a stiff 5.8 or a soft 5.9. Is there really that much of a distinction between a 5.8 or 5.9?
