Weather, roads, and miscommunication seemed to conspire against us visiting any section of the great walls. The morning before our flight to Korea we finally managed to visit Juyong pass.

The wall at Juyong pass is impressive not for its size, but because of the very steep ground it covers. It is easy to see why the area was picked to fortify, it blocks the only route through the mountains. We climbed the steep side of the wall and were rewarded with great views of the surrounding mountains. The ice made the climb a bit sketchy on the way down, but overall it was fairly clear from the record snowfalls. Most of the hills kept their white blanket though, and it added to the view.
