ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the history and future of the Great Wall of China. Scaling and dropping, at times nearly dosing back on itself to maintain the high ground, the Great Wall runs a relentless serpentine over the horizon. The Great wall is nothing like a trail, although there is a clearly worn path along it. There are no switchbacks and no contours, no respite. The Great Wall is hyperbole defined in masonry: not a single wall but a series of strategic ramparts and redoubts, built by succeeding dynasties over a span of 1,800 years.
