While the Warm Up Wall is more likely to see traffic at any given time, and the Pub Wall can have a higher density of climbers, overall the Great Wall of China offers the biggest scene in the Gorge. Morning shade, full afternoon sun. A broad, level bench at its base provides a comfortable hang out spot for man and beast.
The best way to get to the Great Wall is probably via the Central Gully approach. The approach from the CG parking lot takes about 20 minutes.
