"We (all members of the Malaysian Mountaineering Assocoation) were allowed to spend a week or longer on the summit plateau. I summited more than a dozen peaks, Low´s Peak twice, it took me 4 hours from the trailhead and down (on aggregate as a test how I might fare on the annual climbathon in the veteran age group), because we had to first get our gear to the Layang Layang Hut. From there, after climbing Low´s Peak for the first time, we explored peaks on the Eastern Plateau such as the elusive North Peak, did several first climbs, most notably on the Phallus Peak and Andrews Peak (in rain).

"Fairly easy mountain. Highly maintained by Kinabalu park, which makes it very expensive to climb. Expect to pay more than 400 USD. Sad that only the rich can currently climb it. The way up is mostly stairs and hand rails. Last part is solid granite, with ropes added for extra safety." - Mount Kinabalu (Low's Peak), ahmadnakib, Jul 10, 2016
"Absolutely great mountain! Did the standard route from Timpohon gate to Low's peak by next morning. It's actually one day hike but they don't allow it anymore. Did also that tooth-like peak by the south rim of the crown. Had to run away from the guide to do so. Very sad this mountain is so exploited.
