Summary

This place is better known by local as an attraction for its river called Sungai Jernih.

Description

There is a massive face here with serious potential for some great multi pitch lines. This face is not bolted but there have been some trad ascents on it. Contact the Perlis Climbers if you’re interested in an amazing project.

The other area with the bolted lines is a covered section. Climb here all day, rain or shine.

Local restaurant is just a stone throw away at the base camp of Sungai Jernih, cheap and decent.

Access issues

Drive to Sungai Bukit Jernih (6.5433359, 100.2683873), here google says the road ends... but it doesn’t, keep following the road and turn left about 200m past the soccer field to get to Peha Ayam section.

History

History timeline chart

The massive big wall face of Bukit Jernih is said to be aid ascent by local bat faeces collector with only ropes and harness made up by ropes. The local collectors also put up a massive 10 meters long wooden ladder on the access point to a small cave to collect bat faeces. By looking at the shear size of the ladder from far away can be quite impressive about how the locals put up such a heavy ladder without modern climbing equipment back in the days.
