Ascent Trip Report

Continuation of report from Shizi Feng.

We returned to Bei Hai, continuing on the trail around a wooded coombe and up to the shoulder of Shixìn Feng (Beginning-to-Believe Peak). A steep set of steps led up to the summit. After admiring the misty view, I continued on the loop back to the shoulder to rejoin the others. We continued around the flank of the massif on a fine trail of 'balcon' aspect, before a short stiff pull brought us to the Yungu gondola station for our descent to the valley.
