Jim Beachill – 2011 China Great Wall – Trek 6 Jinshanling to Simatai

From Jinshanling to Simatai

This day it drizzled with rain most of the day.
But the rain cleared away the mist of the previous day and we spent the day with views and sights which were just astonishing. The climb began to a watchtower and continued through numerous more watchtowers.
The wall at times was in a ruined and difficult condition and as we climbed and climbed the side walls in places disappeared with drops of several hundred feet visible. A truly scary and memorable experience.
