Photographer's Note

For the longest time, some people believed and think, going up Mt. Kinabalu is really a very tough walk up in the park than a technical climb. Not so if you are given another alternative. Well two really, but the one in the photo is for those with gecko's hands and feet.

If you have been up to Mt. Kinabalu, you would have noticed the wide, grey sloping granite rockface looming above the base camp. This rockface is called Panar Laban and, if you are up to it gecko like, this sheer rockface has 9 pitches over 300m to Sayat Sayat.

To read further what the man in this photo did and felt on the rockface, you might like to read Men's Health Singapore Edition in the next coming issues.

NB:
To a question posted by Trekks:
To shoot this assignment, I need to climb first before the rest to the 1st pitch where I "anchored" myself. I have restricted mobility as safety is paramount for everyone's concern. This is one place where calling your subject to look at the camera is a bad call.

I probably can "move" in an arc above the climber but the incline is acute enough not permitting me to stand or squat while taking pictures. You can "sit" down and lean your body sideway as close as you can to the rock surface.
