The Long Wall - The World's Longest Rock ClimbFri Night Vid

© Well Good productions

Have you ever wondered what the longest climb in the world is? Something on Baffin Island or in the greater ranges? You'd be forgiven for thinking so. 

Nestled amongst the lush hillsides of upstate New York sits a bluff of quartzite rock known as the Gunks. Its short yet mighty wall stretches more than 9000ft... horizontally.

Established by Dan Rosanstein and Ken Nichols in 1987, the Great Wall of China route is a masterpiece of esoterica which traverses the entire wall, its greatest crux may be jug rash, bugs, and dog walkers.

One Dream. Two Dirtbags. 9000ft of Climbing.
