This route provide some fine climbing on the Great Wall, and while not technically difficult, you should be confident at the grade to lead it.

1. Start up the prominent corner on the left side of the wall. When possible traverse right all the way until a good ledge is reached.

2. From the belay step up and right passing a piton runner. Keep moving right until you reach a good belay in the triangular niche.

3. Traverse right, and then move down slightly to gain a narrow ledge. Move along the ledge and then finish up the slab above.


Low level girdle of Central Wall.

Did the second ascent soon after with Dougie Mullin(I think?). It also requires a competant second due to the traversing nature of the route. Sep 23, 2008
