Jim Beachill – 2011 China Great Wall – Trek 4 Huangyaguan Walk

Huangyaguan Walk

We drove for a further hour to the Huangyaguan section of the Wall. Here the wall has been restored but it climbs from here over the next mountain range with innumerable steps.
At the end of several hours of climbing we faced the Sky ladder – a quarter of a mile of steps which rose by 60%. This meant hauling yourself up step by step!
