Pole Climbing

At the Slope Gathering of the Miao held once every year, pole climbing is always performed.  A parasol tree log about 10 meters tall is erected on the ground with a cluster of green leaves tied to the wine and cakes. Competitors, always-young men, take turns to climb to the top and drink a mouthful of the wine before they slide down. Some go up using only their hands, some climb with hands and feet, some choose to climb in an upside-down position, others climb while keeping turning around the pole. The crowd cheers for those who go up the quickest and in the most difficult manner.
