Climbs the obvious right slanting crack / seam.

Attack the seam with determination. After clipping the 1st bolt commit to a couple of good finger locks to make progress. Good holds are soon reached at the 2nd bolt.

The remainder of the climb involves pulling jugs all the way to the anchors.


Located just right of center, of the Central area of the Great Wall of China.


9 bolts, 2 mussy hooks Anchor

Finger size may be a factor on this route. My gal-hands fit perfect in the locks where my partner on the second had to use less than perfect pinky locks and maybe even some crazy dyno move.

All the business is in the opening moves so hang in there and enjoy.
