i think they put this as a guide for night trekking.
though i didn't wear any , but wearing gloves and shin guard is advisable
for safety purpose.
on the other end of the ridge is Mt Pulai
in 2014 ( click here )
although it looks similar , but climbing it is more difficult due to sharp rocks
on the terrain along the way up
Mount Baling , Kedah.
it was a relaxing trip with surprisingly beautiful view.
took us average 1.5hours of trekking to reach the top .
not a technical nor exhaustive hike , I rate this as 2-2.5 / 5 for difficulty level.
good enough for inexperienced trekkers.
