Many local media and sports platforms have reposted screenshots of the relevant clips. Most netizens criticized the woman for being too selfish in spite of the danger, and in case of an accident, the firefighters would go up the mountain to rescue.

However, a small number of netizens think that the clip is just a matter of angle. This location has always been checked in by many people, and some people point out that there is actually a platform under the cliff.

If you want to get to that location, you have to climb down a slit about two meters high from the aerial platform, step on the big rock and climb up the rock level before going out.

Lu Zechen said: "There may be enough places to stand on that foothold, but we can't just consider this element alone. We have to consider the process of climbing to that position, and also think about the consequences if we miss it."

Lu Zechen looked down from the air platform to inspect the surrounding terrain.

The protruding rock level at the bottom of the photo is where the person who checked in is standing. If he stumbles, he will fall about 8 meters to the inclined stone platform in the middle of the photo.

Since the stone platform is slanted outward, there is a great chance to continue to roll out and fall again.

In case of a miss, fall at least 8 meters

After looking at the nearby terrain, Lu Zechen said: "(The rock level) has a vertical height of about 8 meters, and there is another stone platform that slopes outward. If you miss that position, you will immediately drop 8 meters. If you can’t stop on the platform, you will roll out along the slope, and there is already a cliff.”

"Without any protective equipment, it is not recommended to stay at that location." Lu Zechen said: "This is a rock climbing route. To go to these places, we must wear ropes and safety belts to prevent us from falling accidentally. If there is no equipment, it is recommended to go there. Here (the aerial platform) we have to stop, and it is not recommended to climb any further. The skills and equipment required for hiking are different from those for mountain climbing. If you use hiking equipment for routes involving mountain climbing or rock climbing, there will be great risks. "

There are fixed points for rock climbing at the scene.

Lu Zechen said: "That is a very exposed position. On mountain climbing, the sense of exposure and height will reduce people's confidence and performance. They may not dare to move or miss." He also mentioned that the 602-meter Fei'e Mountain is a The highest peak in Kowloon, the weather will affect the difficulty of hiking and climbing. "In addition to the strong wind, the wet weather will make the stones here slippery and increase the difficulty."

Mountain art coach Lu Zechen is familiar with the terrain of Fei'e Mountain.
