Via Ferrata in China?

Post by justin »

I'm sure many people have seen these images. They were sent to me in a Powerpoint presentation.
Does anyone know where it is?
And what are the padlocks doing there? :shock:

howdy Justin
That's pretty scary shit considering how rusty it all looks. The padlocks I think are some form of traditional blessing/wish making ceremony that the locals do.
I saw something similar on the ''Amazing race'' when they hosted it in China.
Thats my story and I'm sticking to it
cheers

I hope that they have proffesional rescue services in china. That route has got to generate far more rescues than a volunteer based outfit can handle! Super scary! :shock:
Happy climbing
