Climbing Mount Kinabalu in A Day

For veteran Everest mountaineer and leadership coach, M.I doesn’t mean Mission Impossible, but rather Mobility Impaired.  This MI athlete will be attempting the first known single-day ascent of 4095m high Mount Kinabalu, by an MI athlete.

While most people trekking to the summit cover the ascent over a 2-day period, David has been preparing to make the ascent of Borneo’s summit, in a single day. Several ascents of the popular peak have also been done by other disabled sportsmen, but none, to the best of our knowledge, has done in a single push from the base of the peak (Timpohan Gate at 1866m asl) to the top.

Climbing in aid of the Society for the Physically Disabled (SPD), David’s  climb will begin on August 23rd, 2013. Weather permitting, he aims to make it to the top on the same day, and descend to the Pendant Hut at 3300m; before a descent to the base of the peak on Aug 24th.

Media opportunities include:

–       interview with David Lim

–       photo/ video opportunities of the ultra light weight kit he plans to use on the ascent

–       use of HD clip of training ( in Singapore)

A media briefing will be held on Tuesday, Aug 20th at 11am at:

SPD Ability Centre
2 Peng Nguan Street
Singapore 168955

This climb is made possible with the partnership of:

Mountain Torq Sdn Bhd
Society for the Physically Disabled
