Established by long time mountaineer, friend and expedition partner Wilfred Tok, Mountain Torq provides a unique mountaineering thrill and challenge. Consider it mountaineering for non-mountaineers. Mountain Torq is a string of routes comprising steel rungs, footplates and cables strung alongside steep cliffs and slopes of Mt Kinabalu. This is a via ferrata (or iron road) first created in the Italian Alps nearly 100 years ago. Since then, these methods of climbing up and traversing mountains have spread throughout Europe. MountainTorq is not only set in Mt Kinabalu,a UNESCO heritage site, but is also the world’s highest via ferrata. Find out more here.

Join Grant Rawlinson, my friend, and expedition partner from climbs in Iran, Russian and Kyrgyzstan, as he prepares for his biggest challenge yet – a climb of Mt Everest via the North Ridge in Tibet in Spring 2011. Grant is detailing his training schedule, and supporting charitable causes on his blogsite.
