A 6 Hours One Way Mount Santubong Summit 1 OFF TRAIL Trekking

Normally when hike Mount Santubong, we will hike from either the park HQ entrance, or from Bukit Puteri, I joined a few of my hiking friends that day to hike mount Santubong, and this is from the South side, this will be an off trail hike.
The entrance its belongs to a Malay family, and they are kind enough to let us park our vehicle in front of their compound.
The trail start off with a flat ground, and many pitcher plant here and there. Most of them are no more bigger than the palm of my hand.

I think because there are less people here, so there are many mosquito. 

A dry river bed, we start to descent. 

We saw the national park boundary signboard, we are in Santubong National Park boundary now.

The landscape are getting steeper

Some of the rock face are 90 degree, no way to climb over it. But have to go around it.

Reached a view point, in front of us its the summit 1 of mount Santubong

Any idea this is from what animal?

One part where we are barely have anything to step on, its just on the edge of the cliff. 
This is the point where summit 1 meet with summit 2, the big gully between the two peaks.

Last push to reach the summit

And here I am, the usual summit 1 view point of Mount Santubong
We descent by using the official route fix by the national park ranger

Pantai Putery beach.
Distance: 3.85km (one way)
