From Malaysia, Singapore, UK, USA and Ireland, it’s certainly a diverse group of non climbers who are facing up to this challenge of fitness, endurance and determination.
All of us over the coming weeks and months will be wondering if we are fit enough or will we be beaten by the big mountain, but fears of failure or heights for that matter will not deter our resolute drive to summit Mt. Kinabalu.
The Agenda: So if all goes to plan our agenda will look a lot like this
Friday June 28th- Depart Kuala Lumpur early (KL), arrive Kota Kinabalu before noon(KK)then transfer to Kundasang
Saturday June 29th – Climb to base camp, with lots of sweat and some tears!
Sunday June 30th– 2am start for a picturesque dawn summit, much jubilation followed by descent on the amazing Via Feretta (Iron Way) or descend the way we came up, then transfer to Kundasang
Monday July 1st- Poring Hot Spring, R&R with much storytelling and photo exchanging at Kota Kinabalu. (Return to KL or Stay to visit Borneo Child Aid)
Tuesday July 2nd - Visit Borneo Child Aid, Morning, KK- Lahad Datu - KK, transfer KL
