I've been traveling around Asia since August (since my Australian visa ran out) and managed to catch up on a stop from back in late August or early September.

Thanks for the TR! I wish I had of found it a few days ago - I am just finishing up in Mulu National Park and managed to miss climbing here! (after asking all the park rangers if there was any climbing around here and being told no!). There is a stack of great looking limestone here, lots around camp 5, not to mention "The Pinnacles" which look like they would be real fun to climb. It's weird though - the rangers say they are not keen to bolt any of these formations, but it seems fine to whack in stacks of bolts, ladders, ropes on the very steep track in. I said why not bolt a route on the side facing away from the lookout point so you don't see them, and was met with a baffled stare of mis-understanding. Hopefully someone else will have better luck with the locals than me and get a route or two established. It would be a killer hike up with new routing gear, drill etc though! It's super steep.

I'm off to Kuching next though, so hope to have more luck there. Thanks again.

jgoding, the Fairy Caves crag is near Kuching, not the Mulu Caves. Get a hold of Malcolm who lives in Kuching (borneo4x4@gmail.com) and he'll get you a guidebook and the homestay if you wanna climb, surely worth a stop even if just 1-2 days

there is a small community of climbers that you can partner with if needed
