Essential gears for a climb

Good climbing-grade ropes, harnesses, and a proper climbing shoes ~ important to get foot traction when going vertical

Safety latch /runners or whatever it is called ~ very pricey pieces of gadget that your life hangs on when you’re climbing many, many meters up there…

2 of my mates *mr. big balls revealed!* went on for a tryout on Route 999 & managed to put up good battles grappling with the vertical limit before succumbing to forces of gravity & fatigue. 2 thumbs up for their respective virgin efforts!

alamak so mr biggy balls is roy!LOL.. so it looks like u got to wear special shoes for rock climbing eh? i think rock climbing is definitely out from my list, not to talk about climbing mt kinabalu, anything to do with strenous exercise will automatically be striked off from my list ho ho . Anyway nice series of photos and thumbs up for the spirit in attemping rock climbing.
