. Alternative (YDS5.8): at pitch 3 (starting from the very same level of the big ledge at the top of pitch 1 of south face routes), climbing up a few meters and traverse and crawl to the right for about a dozen meters and climbing up. FA: Mingyu Lai, Guowei Ye of NTU mountaineering club, on Aug 25, 2003.
. NOTE: after years of massive earth quakes and typhoons, it is now (observed in 2009) not easy any more to walk on the huge ledge at the top of pitch 2 (ie, the top of pitch 1 of south face route) from the left of south west face to the south east ridge to choose your route. Parties should choose their route on either south or south west face before starting pitch 1 now.
