'Rock climbing'

>> Wednesday, March 7, 2007

Aside from food, the PerutBesi members are also an advanterous bunch in terms of going places. Last Sunday, I felt like getting away for a stress-reliever- I went rock climbing at TC! Madness. Don't ever do this... I did it out of madness, craziness, & sheer determination. Well, I went there alone & I have NO safety gear whatsoever.

The rocks are at the far end of Teluk Cempedak, Kuantan. It's at least 4 storeys high... I dunno how to estimate la, but for me it's high la. It's not those rocks that ppl climb indoors. Those that I climbed are REAL rocks.

Here are some pics that I took during my stress-relieving trip:

The formation of clouds were really pretty,and the colours of the sky & sea blended in harmony with each other... at that time, it was around 6.30 p.m.


The sight of these few friends sitting together brought warmth to my heart & gave me the urge to shoot a photo of them. The lady in pink wore a shirt which says "Locals only". Fascinating.


These are the rocks at one end of TC, where I decided to climb (not in this picture). Madness, yes, but a total challenge worth taking up.


The tall, middle rock hidden behind the trees & bushes was the one that I climbed up. Stress makes one do crazy things. The climb took about 15 min as there was no specific pathway (it's not intended for climbing). Rocks were everywhere, & so were soil, dry leaves, plants, roots, and eeky stuff!


This is the magnificent view from the top of the highest rock! The wind was blowing VERY strongly, & the sound of crashing waves, rustling leaves, and the sight of the eagle soaring majestically knocks you off your socks! -taken around 7.15 p.m.




There's one thing that you'll want to avoid when you climb that rock- leaves of a palm tree. There are thorns on the leaves of the tree, and it really hurts when the thorns get into your flesh as you climb up or get down.


By the time I got down to the shore, it was almost 7.30 p.m... or nearing 8 p.m. The last thing that caught my eyes was this:


I hope this post gave you a different view of TC, which we know so well of ;) Enjoy the beach while you have it! Cheers!
