Rockfax Description
A searingly-thin direct line to the first belay of Great Wall. It is very similar to many of the great E5 slabs on slate, but with even more worrying protection. Start about 7m right of Great Wall and climb up to gain a vertical crack at 8m. Make increasingly worrying moves up to the left-hand end of an overlap. Move up again and eventually step left onto the Great Wall belay. Continue up Great Wall P2. © Rockfax

had the gear beta for the wire slot so claimed the flash, but I was still hamster-wheeling at the crux! really good climbing either side of the crux anyway, brilliant slab

Quite intense! really good route, sustained and just enough "ok" bits of gear to stop it being too terrifying

Took a hang at the finger slot with really painful feet. Did in one long pitch to the top of great wall. Hard crux moves.
