Freeing the Chinese Puzzle Wall had been attempted in the past, but it took the team of Brette Harrington and Marc-Andre Leclerc to piece a route together in 2016.

They called their line Hidden Dragon and it climbs a number of steep 5.12 corners. One of the upper open-book-corners is called Book of Botany because they had to clean flora from the crack.

Leclerc likened it to the University Wall in Squamish, but with better views.

The big white wall is in the Nesakwatch River Valley in B.C. There are a number of aesthetic spires including North Nesakwatch, South Nesakwatch and Mount Rexford.
