Inspecting the Wall

Left Beijing at 6.30 to inspect the route. The steps are harder than I thought, I guess there were no building regs when they were built. Took an hour to get across a 4 K section. Great to meet up with Klaus and Ole, they are as excited as I am for Saturday despite the fact 33 degrees is predicted. The wall is like a massive sun trap its like being in a pizza oven
