6. Don't step on the goat path covered by grass and unable to see the reality below; try to cross over or go around; otherwise, you may fall down the slope or into a deep pit.
7. Don't get too close to the front and back of the bush when drilling, the rebounding thorns can easily stab your eyes; remember to bring a sunglass and lower your head to cover your eyes with the brim of your hat, or use a trekking pole etc. to protect your eyes.
8. Do not use dead branches or weeds and other unstressed things to tension climbing; only be able to climb with the pull of rooted branches larger than the thickness of their thumbs.
9. Do not two people holding hands, pulling people from the bottom up, to each other's wrists in hand.
