Working At : Mitigating the danger at the First Rope, to lower the risks of main rope from swinging out to the right when climbers descending the cliff.
Work Done in February 14, 2009 : Rock Climber Lau and Peter, together with Eric & some others had worked on an enhanced rope( red & white striped rope ), tying it to the main rope ( green color ) on February 14, 2009
What Happened after that : The Enhanced Rope was cut off by someone ( ????? ) between February 14, 2009 and March 19, 2009
Taking the opportunity to ride on the coverage by Star Metro, we highlight to the reporter on the danger in Bukit Tabur, with hope they will also put a little advise to the potential trekkers, who have never come here but planning to, or new trekkers who needs the information.
I took up the opportunity to assist KC and his team ( http://penguin-r2.blogspot.com )
of Everest Base Camp trekkers ( They are going in October 2009 )
in the photo shootings,
and training in Bukit Tabur.
while leaving Derrick Wong & gang, to assist Rock Climber Lau, who always put on harness,
to work on the enhanced rope at the First Rope Location.
Working On the aim again : Our effort now is to focus on safe trekking, this is the second time the enhanced rope is being tied to the main rope.
Testing By Lai Kuan
KC 's team of Everest Base camp trekkers were among the first and previlege to use the rope with enhanced feature to scale down the cliff.
We hope the work done this time will stay to benefit those who needs it.
A special thanks to Lau, who has just recovered from his bout of flu, but chose to come due to the urgency and need in Bukit Tabur, and Derrick Wong, who has purposely taken a day of leave off from work to help, and lai kuan & alex and Amelia in one way or another contributing to the community work towards trekking safely
No matter how safe this community work is meant for everyone, we would advise that it's better to be sure yourself by checking the rope thoroughly before making any descend as safety precaution.
Please take a picture, send us a mail should you suspect breakage of any sort on the rope, let's keep an eye on safety for each other to ensure safe trekking in Bukit Tabur
