Description 

A must do for trad climbers who find themselves wondering why they spend so much time in the Gorge. IMO, the most memorable pitch at the Great Wall, though it gets very little traffic.

The lower half is easy face climbing with a couple of bolts. The upper half is an remarkably smooth crack that widens from fingers to hands.


Location 

The right side of the Great Wall.


Protection 

Gear to 3" with the concentration from fingers to hands.
