Summary

Impressive rock spire in the Kelabit Highlands requiring an expedition to get there.

Description

Bukit Batu Lawi is an impressive rock spire located remotely in the Kelabit Highlands. It has two distinct peaks separate by a saddle: The smaller one called Female Peak or Wife can be ascended by non-technical (class 4) climbing. The inspiring Male Peak or Husband however, can be only ascended by technical rock climbing. Of the the two summits the smaller one is called Female Peak, which can be reached by non-technical scrambling. The larger and most prominent feature of the mountain is the Male Peak. In addition there are major walls on the eastern and western slopes along the ridge, which may hold additional potential for great multi-pitch sports routes.

Access issues

Batu Lawi is an extension of Pulong Tau National Park since 2008.

Approach

The trip to Batu Lawi is an expedition by itself. Two shelters were built in 1991 which then cut the return trip from Bario to 4 days. As of 2016 the easiest access is by 4x4 using the logging roads.
