Rock Climbing

Information on rock climbing in Malaysia...

Rock climbing is a relatively new sport in Malaysia. Limestone outcrops can be found throughout the country and there are sandstone mountains in Sarawak and alpine granite walls in Sabah. The potential for new climbing areas to develop in the country is vast. The existing crags have routes of all levels of difficulty.

The majority of the developed crags are around Kuala Lumpur. The most popular include Bukit Takun to the north of the city and the Batu Caves, which has eight different crags. Most of the existing routes are fully bolted sport climbs for which the French grading system is used. Traditionally protected climbs can be found on the alpine granite.

Indoor climbing walls are also becoming popular in Malaysia.
