China: Cliff-top village builds steel ladder for children to go to school

(CNN)The world's most terrifying school run is about to get a little less hair raising.

In the mountains of southwest China's Sichuan province, a group of children must descend an 800-meter (half mile) cliff to reach their school.
Previously they used unsteady vine ladders to make the descent but now a steel ladder is being built to make the treacherous journey from the isolated cliff-top village of Atule'er easier.
