Description 

Malaysia consists of two halves; Penninsular Malaysia and Borneo. Malayasia is a diverse country geographically, from lowland tropical rainforests to the high alpine peaks of Mt. Kinabalu. Malaysia is well known for its Thailand quality limestone and various granite climbing areas. Friendly and hospitable, the people of Malaysia are a mix of several cultures. Visiting climbers to this fantastic country will be made to feel at home right away.

(Please contact me if you'd like to write a better description. I am just trying to keep the areas hierarchically organized)

The crux is the start. Pull hard from the undercling traversing right to reach small holds where you can heelhook over the lip to gain a stance above the lip. Otherwise, an easier start goes straight up to a hidden pocket deep in the hollow, then traverse right, then up the vertical smooth wall. Do an armlock in the chimney to ascend. A second crux comes in the smooth chimney with no feet (or step on the bolt like my wife) to gain an easier ground to big holds finish. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
