Description 

The Great Wall proper is the dominant feature of the overall Great Wall complex and has the longest climbing routes amongst the South Peak Crags at around 50m (2 pitches). Once above the short band of moss at the base the rock is generally very clean, solid and offers some excellent climbing. The positions high above Hyacinthe Bay are spectacular.

Getting There 

Follow the access details for the Great Wall Complex to locate the base of Silk Road.
