|The Great Wall
This is a great beginners 5.10 trad route. Lots of great pro and tons of jugs to place it from.
Just to the right of Dynabolt Gold, look for a hand crack about midway up the route. Make some difficult moves to start the route to some easy climbing into a large hole. Clip the bolts at the roof of the hole. Be sure to extend the lower bolt for drag. Pull the roof (crux) and get established into the crack above using large plated jugs. Follow the plated jugs around the crack to the anchors.
In the center of the Great Wall, notice the vertical hand crack about midway up the route. A 60m to get down.
Hand sized pro and 3 bolts. Rap anchors at the top.

Quality route! Not just one of those....oh I did this because I had my rack with me. Do this over most of the sport routes on the wall.
Bomber #2 cam in the roof crack to start that you place at a good stance. That's probably the crux, but the rest of the climbing is engaging throughout.
