Rockfax Description
A superb test-piece up the grooves on the left of the Great Wall. Start below the left edge of the Great Wall. Surprisingly awkward.
1) 5b, 20m. Climb a groove left of a pinnacle then step back right and climb up to some breaks. Move right then up to a stance below a groove.
2) 6a, 15m. Climb up to the lower groove on the right. Follow this to where holds lead left to a hanging groove. Hard moves lead left to the sustained upper groove. Continue to join Diglyph.
3) 4c, 25m. As for Diglyph. © Rockfax

Led pitch 1 and 3, though started too far left and too high so didn't really climb pitch 1. Brilliant main pitch though

I think this was fantastic but the second pitch is a lot more consistent than the guidebook makes out. Despite this fell off at the second groove with a slimey jam.

Traversed much too low. E4 6a that way, made the rest seem easy. Excellent route.
