Summary:

Long/Lat: 100.262260, 6.518106

Description:

The crag consists of two adjacent freestanding outcrops of which only the northern hill has been developed, and this only partly on its West and North face. Bolting and logs courtesy effort of CAMP5, Kuala Lumpur.

Approach:

By Car From KL via North-South-Highway; exit at Changlun to Kangar. From Kangar on Road 7 direction Padang Besar. After about 7km turn right at Beseri at a large T-Junction with Traffic Light; direction Mata Ayer. Shortly after crossing the Railway you reach another T-Junction (about 2km from first junction; just after a bridge; there is a large cement factory at the right hand side); here you head left direction Padang Besar. The crag appears at the right hand side after about 300m, standing in a padi field opposite a Mosque. A small dirt road directly leads to the foot of the rock, however, it is recommended to park the car further away or at the main road and walk the remaining 100m by feet.

By Train The trainstation Tasik Melati is just a stone throw away from the crag. If you arrive from Thailand, exit at Padang Besar and hire a taxi to Tasik Melati/Bukit Keteri. However the local train will stop at Tasik Melati itself.

History:

Bukit Keteri was pin-pointed and developed during the Mammut/Camp5 bolting expedition. The Crown Prince of Perlis and his Wife were the first to climb at this crag and hopefully with this gesture initiated a sustainable development of climbing in this part of Malaysia.

The Kampung Paya Gunung Pinnacle is a free standing monolith with two distinct peaks. With a multi-pitch climb that will take you straight to the top of the main higher peak.

Approach:

From Jerantut town, take Highway 64 out east all the way past the Termeloh turnoff (where there is a big mosque). Keep going for 4.1KMs past this turnoff and take a right turn into a small slip road next to a concrete bus stop/hut. Take the first right and drive straight along the kampung road for about 10 mins till you reach the end. You should be able to see the pinnacle by now. Make a right when the road splits at the base and park your car around the area. Watch out to not park it too close to the cliff in case of falling loose rocks.

Long/Lat: 100.294845, 5.422547

Unique Features And Strengths:

Rock type is Granite.

Description:

The one & only bolted outdoor climbing area at Penang Island.Routes number ( 1 to 14 ) starts from left to right side of the main wall. For routes 15 to 17, they are located opposite the main wall.

Access Issues:

This place is located just behind a housing estate. So, keep the noise level low when approaching the site.No restriction of access so far.

Approach:

Best way is to have your own transport to the area.Park your vehicle along the housing estate road & walk in to the site after the water tank on left. Do not walk up the hill slope once you enter the jungle, a slight turn towards your right on flat land & towards left again. Walk straight & you should see the wall at your left.

Ethic:

We just need climbers to keep the area clean, respect the environment & practice safe climbing. A happy & rewarding climbing trip is what we want to achieve at the end of the day.
