How Easy or Difficult it is to Climb the Steep Staircase of the Steepest Mountain in HuaShan, China?

I needed several days of rest for my legs to recover after hiking the steepest mountain HuaShan in China.

The main problem was having to ascend or descend continuously  for many hours the steep and narrow tread width steps in the mountain.

This girl in the photo was trying to show us how easy  it is climb the steep steps.

Please note the chains on either side of the steps.

I must admit climbing the steps is much easier for this little girl in view of her smaller weight, vitality, cheerfulness and the small feet she has for negotiating the steps.

Carry on, little girl, you have shown us a good example of climbing up . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

  1. Indeed it seemed easy for this little girl! When I was in Peru, I saw kids just “did it” so easily and naturally while I was still catching up negotiating those rugged steps which were not steps at all. I recognized your steep Huang Shan steps as I was there too. I remember my sister and I had to look for foot massage at the hotels every night after the hiking in Huang Shan. You could still carry your heavy camera and took this picture. It seems you are doing very well!

  2. So this is why they call it the “ear-to-wall climb” up HuaShan Mountain. I couldn’t imagine. I was in the vicinity in March 1986 but the weather made it impossible to see. Actually, now that you’ve shown me what it looks like, I’m counting the weather that day one of my many blessings!
