BETA PHOTO: follow the obvious black streak

Description 

Great line on the "slabby" part of the China Wall! Actually, this line is pretty much vertical with sections of gently overhanging stone, so don't expect a slab climb! This route doesn't have many sharp holds - they are pretty kind on the skin. The climbing involves difficult face maneuvers with reachy moves, lots of sidepulls, and tricky feet.Praise the Lowered is well protected but not overly so - you will be pulling some cruxes above bolts - the way God intended them to be done!

This is about the 3rd line right of "Gang of Four" on the vertical wall. It follows a very obvious black streak up the wall.

One of the cave-dwelling locals over on the steep stuff once told me that this line was well known as the best "slab" route to do at the China Wall. I had to agree. Get on it!

Protection 

8 or 9 bolts to anchors
