Summary

Beach near HQ with the most prominent rock formations.

Description

This Beach is were park HQ and all the facilities are located. During the boat ride you get a good look at the cliffs. From HQ the impressive Assam Tower East Face is clearly noticeable. At low tide you can walk around to the other sectors.

Access issues inherited from Bako National Park

The park is operated by Sarawak Forestry Corporation, which presently does not allow rock climbing due to lack of mountain rescue service. Contact Alexander Hölke for a case-by-case agreement with the park management if you plan a climbing trip there. For the multi-pitch route make sure you know what you are doing – you must be able to get back down to the beach by yourself. Bouldering is generally tolerated.

Ethic inherited from Bako National Park

Sports Climbing with an adventurous note. All climbs are equipped with long shaft (200mm) titanium glue-in bolts. The sandstone is soft and somewhat brittle. Abseil and lower-off points have Ti rings tied with slings to the bolts - it is advised to bring spare slings along for renewal.
