In the latter section of Jiankou the Wallis very steep and leads directly up to every mountain peak creating a jagged ladder sensation when seen from afar.
Beyond Jiankou in the north and west lies a point known as "The Beijing Knot (Běijīng jié北京捷)", which is where two sections of the Great Wall come together. Finally at the north-west end of Jiankou Great Wall proper, it connects to a brief ruined mountain-top stretch known as Jiuyan Lou Great Wall. The Jiuyanlou Great Wall only counts a few broken bases of watchtowers and some sparsely identifyable wall remains, however it is well noted for its eery looking 9 Eye Tower, the Jiuyan Lou.
