This is another stacked crag in the Central Gorge that is a good cold weather destination (obviously, it gets sun). It is home to the popular Sendero Luminoso, as well as an assortment of other high quality climbs.
Located just north of the Great Wall of China. Approach from the standard Central Gorge descent gully and cross the River.
