Description 

A surprisingly nice line for the grade; excellent for the novice leader.

Scramble up to a ledge, then move right to the start of a right-leaning ramp. Climb the ramp past two bolts, then move left onto the face and continue up using good plates and jugs.

Location 

Starts at the right end of the Great Wall.

Protection 

Nine bolts, bolted anchors.

Be careful lowering on this route. The bulge to the right of the crack can cut the rope.
