It was 3am when the alarm went off as I fought the urge to go back to sleep as I had only manage to get a couple of hours of tossing and turning. As pulled myself out of the bed the excitement slowly triggered and a pot of coffee was essential to keeping me awake for the journey.
About 30 minutes later, Raimy my brother arrived to fetch me and we loaded all the gear at the back of his pick-up. We had one stop before we could proceed to Gua Musang which was to fetch my friend Syiaful in Kuala Lumpur. Initially there were supposed to be four climbers, however due to some unforeseen circumstances, it would just be the three of us.
