Looking back at Simatai
Looking back at the way we've just come - up the steep Simatai section. This is the extra bit some of us were stupid enough to do at the start of the day: straight up, up, up, then straight back down, down, down. It was really hard, but I'm really glad I did it.
You can see the distant start of Jinshanling section, which we've got to get back to and start going along, in the top-right of the frame. Those trekkers sensible enough to not do the extra bit had passed that point a little while before I took this photo - much catching up to do!
