Gunung Buros: White Magic Wall
Gunung Baros: White Magic Wall. Alex Holke working...
|Will have to park near some houses and walk thru a pepper field. No issues as of now to access wall but smile and dont walk on the crops.|
Gunung Buros is a small but steep limestone mountain visible from the road. It is well covered with overhanging vegetation, offering a shady retreat from the tropical sun. Beautiful white rock with very interstingly shaped features. The left hand side is overhanging with hard and pumpy routes. The right hand side is less steep and has many pockets and features which results in a number of moderate routes. Nearby walls and caves are worth exploring.
From Kuching drive south towards Serian. After about 45km turn right following the signs to Kampung Taee, there are some shops at this intersection. Follow the road for 8km just past Kampung Bantang. There are two obvious rock face visible from the road. Buros is the smaller mountain to the left. Take the trail between the houses with small bamboo bridges. After crossing the 3rd small bamboo bridge turn right and follow the trail thru pepper fields to the mountain. There is a large cave entrance and White Magic wall is to the right of this entrance.

Interesting and unusual climbing on limestone. Harder than it looks. Climb/stem up a few meters into the obvious chimney, which is open at the bottom. Chimney along horizontally out to the main face while it gets tighter. When you feel stuck move out of the chimney/offwidth into the overhanging wall. Climb the crack and later face to the anchor. It is a good idea to clip stick the first bolt as the first meters are of lower rock quality. ...[more] Browse More Classics in International
