swing the head seven or eight weeks under the “swing”, the last to seize the “life-saving pole!”
adventure is just a last resort action. We stand in front of a cliff about 10 meters, like sliced ??ax general. If you bypass the cliff, at least more than two hours march. Frustration, head of the decision-week climb a cliff with a rope … …
week the officers and men to see the head without blinking an eye, and one end of the rope at the waist, with rock cane, marching chimney, one by one ape-like wall climbing to the top.
