Slab to vertical climbing. Pretty impressive sector high above the bamboo forest. Top anchors leading to a fix rope which is the bottom of the Highlands sector.
The belay area is not the most comfortable, but still ok.

For those who do not speak any Chinese, getting to this crag may be quite troublesome, however not impossible. First of all, if you are coming from Hangzhou then you need to take a bus from the Hangzhou West Bus Station to Gao Hong (高虹) which should only cost 15 RMB and take about 2 hours.
From Gao Hong you can take a mini bus for around 60 RMB total (seats 7-9 people) and get dropped off directly at the foot of the mountain. You can arrange to meet up with the mini bus driver beforehand and she can meet you when you hop off the bus. Her number is +86 138 6800 8149.
The village at the foot of the mountain is Longshan or Longshancun.
If you are coming straight from Shanghai, a mini van (10 seats) rented for the weekend, with driver, costs around 2000RMB.
Right side of Lion's Head. Get passed Lower 40s and Mika's Ledge. You will find a fixed rope to the right which you need to pull on to hike up the steep slope. The Midlands lie on the edge up there.
