A rocky summit, 3869 meters high above sea level, looked like a monk's hat standing high above the Laonong stream gully on the east of Yushan main summit. Yushan East Summit is rated as the most technically difficult summit on Taiwan for regular hikers (via traditional route).

Routes in this area are less popular because the area is slightly more remote and it is not as easy to stack enough ice and snow for alpine climbing as main summit and the mixed routes appear to be much steeper with much lesser ice. Climbers wondered they should bring rock shoes or boots with crampons. Most of the routes have no repeated report since modern FA in 1980's.

The FA of technical routes in this area was a rock climb in summers.
