THE alpine climbing area on Taiwan.
. 6 classic alpine routes and more variation routes.
. No repeated report yet rock climbing route on the true north face of the main summit.
. It is possible some of the routes in this area were FA in 1930's when Taiwan was under Japanese ruling, where all the Taiwan Alpine Club reports were destroyed during the transition of the Taiwanese governments after 228 holocaust in 1947. We only have some ancient brief records only about "have climbed some alpine routes on Yushan main summit or east summit this year".
