I received an email from our good friend, Cikgu Ismail, and this time he attached some photos that are very rare to see. It’s the photos of The Summit Trail, exactly around Sayat-Sayat Hut, (the second phase of the climb) which are heavily flooded with rain. Water from the bare rocks of Kinabalu come gushing down like a hurricane, which is really, really dangerous to the climbers.
I wonder how, in the first place, the cameraman get up there??? With those kind of weather, it really scares me, especially just below Sayat-Sayat, you have to hang on to the rope to get there!
Now, how on earth to climb down with the rope and the water???
I wonder how slippery the surface is!
It’s like a river…
The weather you don’t want to have…

Now you know when not to climb by the authorities!
