1. Bukit Jernih 12 routes in Crag



All Sport climbing

Lat / Long: 6.548135, 100.268497


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


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.


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.

1.1. Peha Ayam 12 routes in Sector


Lat / Long: 6.548137, 100.268502


Easy access, a few climbs here from 6B to 8A. 4 open projects that are likely in the high sevens or eights. Awesome place to climb if it’s raining. Trees and a roof provide shade all day.


After you drive past the soccer field, in about 200m turn left. Follow the road for about 300m to (6.5481660, 100.2684580). Park on the side of the road and the climbing is right there.

Slick slab to get to the “chicken bone”. Set some protection (a sling around a tufa) on the tufa in the cave and lean out to clip the first bolt. Climb out of the cave and make your way up.

6c+ Sport 17m
8 Nafas Baru

Very high first bolt, but it’s safe if you approach it the right way. Climb up the slick slab to the cave and climb inside of the cave, set up a sling on a tufa and clip in. Now you can go for the first bolt.

Climb out of the cave and over the tufas to more tufas.
