Rockfax Description
A magnificent, long crack-line that defines the right-hand edge of the Great Wall. Start on the grassy terrace below the crack that bounds the Great Wall on its right.
1) 5a, 25m. The Drainpipe Crack is often wet. This leads to a stance on the ramp on the right. Big cams can help with the unnerving start and provide benefit beyond.
2) 5c, 38m. Move back left and continue up the increasingly-steep crack to a grassy ledge.
3) 5a, 20m. Climb the corner (tricky) then easier cracks to the Eastern Terrace. © Rockfax
