What a fantastic route - slightly incline pumpy climbing on pockets and ledges into a bulging roof with a slanted rail on the left side. Crux sequence of about 10 moves (including a couple of heel hooks) to get over the roof and then a couple more moves to the anchor. Got the send on my 7th go (3 to work out all the moves, 2 warm-up burns and 2 redpoint attempts). Happy to leave Korea with this souvenir!

Sun 22nd Jul 2018 - Bukit Takun
Big Hole
6a 2000 Steps

There's not a topo at the moment, so here's some tips on how to get to the crag and route.

Getting to the Crag

Follow the guide here: http://www.climb.my/routes/selangor-kl/bukit-takun/. If you use 'Grab', Bukit Takun is listed as a destination, this takes you to the guardhouse where you sign in. If you can find someone who knows the area to take you there it'll be easier, otherwise there's some tips below.

At the end of the road you'll see a trail going into the woods. There are two options.

  1. Quick/Steep: Follow the trail for about 3-4 minutes. It goes up, and you'll see a faint fork. The right path goes steeply upwards, and ends at a big fallen tree. Clamber over the tree and follow a faint trail upwards. You'll pass a small tree which looks like an angular 'U' shape. Keep going up, it's quite steep. You'll see a section with some rope to hold on too. Keep going up until you get to the rock face, then make your way to the right and upwards - you'll get to a big hole with graffiti - this is Big Hole.

  2. Long/Smooth: Follow the trail directly forwards. There are patches of rope from time to time. You'll follow these for maybe 15 minutes until you get to a big boulder and the rock face. On the left and right you'll see bolted routes. From here, go right and follow the rock face for about 25 minutes ascent. There'll be a section of rope at one point and some steep bits. After a while you'll get to a big hole with lots of graffiti (it's huge, can't miss it). This is the Big Hole crag.

Finding the Route

To find the route, make your way to 'Big Hole'. Move up and right of the hole, and around a steep rocky section. You'll need to step carefully over some rocky sections which have some steep holes and drops. Once over this walk around a big piece of rock. By the point big hole will no longer be visible, you'll just have rock on your left, and on your right there will be a tree hanging over a steep drop. There should be a line of glued on the very right of the wall, just about at the big drop. This is the last line on Big Hole (you'll see more routes to the right, but that's another crag, those routes actually start much lower down the slope). The next route along from the right should be quite new expansion bolts - this is the route for 2000 steps.

I've tried to show the beginning of the line on the photo.

Beta

The route is all straightforward climbing, great for multi-pitch beginners like me! I skipped the first anchor and the third to make it three longer pitches. Amazing views, very beautiful. You can just about abseil down in two goes with a 70m rope, but if not sure play it safe.

Thanks Patrick and the Malaysian Bolting Fund (https://www.facebook.com/MalaysianBoltingFund/) for the suggestion and tips to find the route. Was a fantastic route for people new to multi-pitch.
