Hi fellow CSers
i'm going to climb mount kinabalu and will be coming down by the ferreta way. i've read many threads about climbing mount kinabalu but haven't come across anything about descending by the ferreta way. hope you guys can give me some advice.
i'm intending to bring a dslr with probably a wide angle lens(if i manage to buy one on my trip to HK) or else it would be my multi purpose tamron 18-270mm PZD lens. Intending to bring it up in a lowepro flipside 200. Not sure if that bag would be alright?
now comes the part that I need some advice, hope those who descended by the ferreta way can help.
Is it alright to carry a flipside 200 and come down by the ferreta way? i've seen many photos of climbers on the ferreta carrying nothing but their helmet and harness. Yet to see a photo of someone carrying a camera bag coming down by the ferreta way. But by say that, probably the person carrying carrying the DSLR is the one snapping the photos. U'll probably have to often lean by the side of the mountain, so is carrying a camera bag too dangerous?
would really help if someone who descended by the ferreta way tell me about his/her experience and give me some advice.
thanks for viewing.
