Mount Kinabalu to be venue for rock climbing

KOTA KINABALU: First it became the venue of an annual mountain race and now Sabah's fabled Mount Kinabalu and its peaks could become the place to be for the world's renowned rock climbers.

A team of three Canadians and an American recently spent two months on Mount Kinabalu charting in detail various aspects of its peaks which would eventually serve as a guide for rock climbers.

Expedition co-ordinator Brent Raymond said the group's task encompassed four phases.

The first involved traversing the Mesilau pinnacles while the second was mainly mapping out the area adjacent to Mount Kinabalu's highest point, the 4,095m Low's Peak.

The third part was going down into Low's Gully, where they were flooded out following a heavy downpour.

Raymond said the last phase was training four Sabah Parks rangers and two Outward Bound Sabah guides.
