This route climbs the right of the two obvious water streaks on the Great Wall. It is the right most line of bolts on the wall. Climb through the 5 bolts on sustained 5.9 climbing.

Oh, BTW, the black water streak that this route climbs is not quite visible in this picture. It is on the far right of the photo, and you can see a little depression where the route tops out.

This is a Paul Duval route summer of 89' I was there that day as well as the California Boys Travis Spitzer and his friend Greg, as well as T-shirt Rich. Also Paul Piana and Kevin Bein and others top roped most of the routes on the wall earlier in the 80's. I was talking with Paul while sitting on Aquarium looking over at the wall he knew all of the climbs and ratings, having not been over there for several years, he didn't know that they had all been bolted already.
