About Bt. Takun:

A good variety of climbing is to be found here and there is much scope for exploration and new routes. The routes described are bolted unless otherwise stated. Shade can be found for most of the day and many of the routes remain dry during the heaviest rain storms, though lightning frequently strikes the mountain. A 60 metre rope may be useful on some of the climbs or even a double rope for some of the multi pitch routes. All multi-pitch routes require an abseil descent unless otherwise stated. Some abseils may require back-clipping in order to maintain contact with the wall.
Nearest town or city: Selangor
Directions: Follow Jalan Kuching / Jalan Ipoh for almost 14km past the toll to reach a petrol station on the right hand side. Turn right off the main road immediately past the petrol station. Head back towards the petrol station on a side road and turn left before reaching it. Follow this road over a bridge to a "T" junction and turn right. Follow the road, which bends round to the left, and up as far as the Golf Club House. Take a road on the left, opposite the Golf Club House just on a right hand bend. Follow this road to the top of the hill and turn left up towards the Villa overlooking the golf course at the base of the cliff. Park somewhere on this road and walk up to and behind the villa where a path through the forest can be found. Follow the path, at first more or less straight up and then diagonally left until near the base of the cliff where the path splits at a rock.
Latitude, Longitude:
Access Issues: You cannot drive up to the Villa anymore and need to park your car outside of the security gate. Register your names at the guard house, so entry should not be an issue.
