I am having a hard time trying to identify a character inscribed on this gate at the Yellow Crane Tower.

enter image description here

I think I have been able to identify the other three characters (入山江). So the character I'd like to have identified is the character to the left.


That would be 江山入画. If you search for Yellow Crane and 江山入画, you will find a bunch of results confirming, for example this one.


It's worth noting that in ancient Chinese, words are read from right to left. Like here, "江山入画", not "画入山江". You can find examples in many places in China.
