Thank you Alan.

It is nice to "visit" other parts of the world and see how others live and work, even if it is just virtually.

Looks like the climbers are well practiced and rope fairly well used. I am glad it is a thick one.

Hi All, 
        Scott I found the original link here" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pUZCYg22Dzc&t=344s "
        this video is easy to see how they maneuver with the rope and the equipment. The cliff is 1500 meters high.
         the rappelling  action is at the first 6 minute of the video. more at 32:50 to 34:00.
          謝謝 alan lee.

        Edit: Dec-20-2016    I listen wrongly, they said they usually pick the best herb at around 1500 meters high.
                                       I have no idea what is high of the cliff, where they at doing the demonstration.
        Edit; Jan-22-2017    The link above no longer available, here is the new link.

Hi All,
         I found another video about this ancient herb picking trade.
         雁荡山灵岩飞渡:第一段        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3O0kmMXk22w&t=137s
         
         These days nobody want to practice this ancient trade any more, they get more profit doing the show for tourist,
         also instead of picking the herb from the cliff, they plant the herb now a day. 
         謝謝 alan lee.
