Zhangjiajie's 'Spider-Man' saving the world from litterbugs

Wearing a safety hat, Su Songyun grasps the rope and moves down carefully on Jan 15, 2019.
Despite the blanket of snow and dropping temperature in Zhangjiajie, Central China's Human province, the 34-year-old Su Songyun clings to a steep cliff in the famous mountainous region populated by tourists from around China all year. He's there for a thankless task: garbage pickup.

A native of the region, which inspired vistas in the epic science-fiction film Avatar, Su learned the trick of "walking" smoothly on the cliff sides using just a rope from his father, who makes a living picking wild edible fungus in the mountain.
Aside from regular trash,, his harvest also includes cellphones, backpacks and treasures lost by tourists.
His message for travelers is to be as mindful with their own belongings as they are with the environment.
Meng Die and Xu Jingjie contributed to the story.
