Done this for the 1st time yesterday prior to the Genting stage of the LtdL. Definitely not for 11-23 or 11-25 cassette. Ouch! but definitely will come again next year.

Story by Donald Lane from Raub, Malaysia, submitted on 16/06/2011
This was a fun climb. I would recommend doing this on a weekday as Malaysian drivers are pretty wild. If you search this hill on youtube, you''ll find rally-car races up it. There is a decent shoulder most of the way up. Also, the police hassled me a bit at one of their checkpoints on the way up but they let me go after only a minute or so.

The 3km descent mid way up the climb is a welcome break. But this break mask the steepness of the final 8-9km monster..its relentless and unforgiving
