    Thanks TS for sharing your experience. Will bear that in mind.

    Experience from last climb, on going up walking stick maybe a hinderance. You'll be using both hands to climb most of the time. Only useful when descending via the plantation route. Gloves is highly best recommended to bring as the rock are mostly sharp edges. But every steps, every sweat is well worth it when you see the view !
