    This climb is so cool looking and close to the road; you see it EVERY time you drive past's begging you to come over and climb it. I climbed this in the early 80's with Lori Graf, and we didn't know it's name, it's rating, or even if it had been done (Dunn?) before. I struggled and huffed and puffed on it, and battled it out and was able to get it (and I usually don't climb 5.11)....but it was a challenge for me. I believe I left an old tube chock at the top for a rap anchor....I bet it's not there anymore. This is a good climb , especially if you like to "get physical."....sort of a must-do if you frequent the Park.... you can only pass it by so many times... then you must stop off and send......

    Due to the expertise in building the walls, the Chinese began to build this great wall during the Spring and Autumn Period around the 8th century B.C. It was aim to protect the three states of Yan, Zhao, and Qin. Later, it witnessed many continuous extensions and restorations. Started as independent walls, it only became the “Great” wall in the Qin Dynasty when the Emperor Qin Shihuang tried to join the walls together to fail the invasions of the Huns in the north. It was from this success that the Great Wall became a global monument of the nation. There are more Great Wall Of China Facts coming up.
