There are always first in every journey, and this is especially true in climbing one of the most legendary peaks in Malaysia.

 

Tioman Island in Malaysia is a little island covered with lush forests, and while it boasts of a great variety of coral reefs that make it perfect for a scuba diving adventure, travelers Lucho Rivera and Cedar Wright instead chose to scale the island’s unclimbed Dragon’s Horns.

Watch them in their adventure, in which they described as,
 

After a whirlwind three day travel sequence Lucho and I found ourselves on Tioman Island staring up at the mythical "Dragon's Horns." It was hard to believe that only one of the huge jungle spires had been climbed...until we started the approach...then it made more sense. But after some epic jungle bushwhacking which culminated with me being attacked by giant hummingbird sized wasps, we someway, somehow, managed to summit the unclimbed Dragon's Horn on our first full day on the island. We topped out at night and endured a shiver bivy until about two a.m. when an impending lightning storm encouraged us to rappel at night. I hope this short film captures some of the magic of our Experience.
 

So start planning your next mountain climbing adventure as soon as possible!
