[UPDATED] Climbing Mt Kinabalu: We made it!

This Wednesday to Sunday (6-10 April), I am climbing Southeast Asia’s tallest mountain – Mt Kinabalu. My expedition partners are Pei Chyi (@peichyi), my brother Eric and sister Yvonne (@yviewangle). Follow us on our climb through Twitter, see if I pass out or make it to the top!

Live tweets from the climb

We’ll be tweeting from the mountain where we can. For the areas that we don’t have 3G or EDGE, we’ve signed up with gladlyCast to post our tweets by SMS. Yes, I know we’re obsessed.

Our Itinerary

We have a more relaxed schedule and are making the hike over 3 days and 2 nights. Our itinerary:

Day 1: Timpohon Gate to Laban Rata
Day 2: Laban Rata to Low’s Peak, back to Laban Rata
Day 3: Laban Rata back down to Timpohon

This is a map of the trail we are hiking.
