Please Take Note ~ Important Message

There is a difficult vertical rock face where ropes and ladders aid climbers up the last leg to the peak. if you are afraid of heights, this may be a bit daunting. The pinnacles is a strenuous climb. its is recommended that climbers be fit. from the word 'go', the climb will be on a 60 - 70degree angle constantly all the way to the rock face.


From base camp, the climb starts as early as 7am and this is required as climbers must reach the viewpoint by 11am. quite often, the mountains will fog over by noon and the view will be completely covered by lunch.

Also, the climb down could be slower as climbers have to be careful because of the limestone shards that are scattered all along the trek. one small error may cause injury. the shards are incredibly sharp. it may take about 7 - 8hrs for the climb up and down. bring along at least 2litres of water and also some energy snacks.

It is most vital that climbers be down before dusk. the jungle light disappears very fast therefore , be down by 5pm. It is imperative you take heed of the guide's advice. They have a right to suspend the climb based on the fitness level and capability of the climber, the weather, the timing and so on. If climbers are not down at base camp 5 by 6pm, a rescue team will be dispatched and this will be cost incurable to the climber , approx: RM250
