Single armed carrier to an elevation over 2000 meters

On the mountain cliff of Mount Hua (华山), there is a single armed labor carrier. His name is He Tianwu (何天武). More than twenty years ago, his wife died of disease and survived with two young children. In order to support this family, he became a miner in Henan Province (河南). He lost his left arm during an accident. About ten years ago, he started this job as a carrier to the top of Mount Hua. Since then, he has climbed the mountain more than three thousand times. His load is heavier than his weight.
