Description 

Chong and Wang Zhiming did some exploratory climbing on the smooth faces at the southern end of the Western Hills Escarpment. The rock is reported to be loose, but may be worth exploring again.

Liu Xinan, Wang Zhiming, and Wang Bin attempted an aid climb up the longest line on the escarpment near the southern end. They got a few pitches up and settled in for the night. Local villagers saw their flashlights on the dark wall and altered the police, who made them come down the next morning. A military communications station sits directly above this part of the Western Hills Escarpment.
