Following picture is what i drawed .the fortress at Heliukou on white line looks like a potato.
Yes, and that is what I find hard to belief. The wall continues into the fortress you made, and remains of a tower can be found inside it. That seems very unlikely, and from what I saw when visiting there most walls in this area is later farm work. There might have been a small fortress here, but I don't think anything remains today.

A fotress around there was mentioned on travel report in Chinese GW forum, the name of fortress is Youxiangkou(游乡口)
Very steep place to put a fortress.

I am not sure either , anyway Shenwei Tower should be around there .
Shenwei is located here: 4012'14.24"N 11843'2.28"E

It is for sure i am correct , there were a couple of photos (your might be included ) posted in GE at the location where i thought .
Except for one all those photos are posted by me.

The pictures show a wall here: 4024'19.10"N 11832'54.52"E, but not here: 4024'24.30"N 11832'59.09"E. Maybe there is an old wall but it is not shown on the pictures and not visible from the fortress town.

Please look at my picture in post #9. It show a wall going at the location I mentioned.

Default Body in tower

In my map ,there was a tower named by chinese walkers in 2003, they called it is Maodanlou 毛蛋楼 (English : hairs on egg) at 4012'6.13"N 11847'27.62"E when they found a whole body inside tower was covered by stones ,and only the top of head was outside stones .

No developed news came up since body was found .I don't know why

Mao dan is the name of a dish (in Beijing called Mao ji dan):

english or chinese, which would make sense. And no, I have not eaten it yet ...

Maybe it is a misunderstanding. What I meant is Mao dan (毛蛋). Because of the feathers inside (羽毛).

Ok, are we talking about Maodanlou . Anyway , the hairs on top head is the main reason they named that tower .

Default Heliukou

Here's some pictures from the pass area at Heliukou.

Except from the wall itself it all look like farm work to me.
