i've been up Mt Kerinchi when i was in much younger....took some shots with a film point n shoot, not sure where i put the photos, if i can dig up 1 or 2 will scan and post, i remember a few quite stunning pictures. My view is that Kerinchi is tougher then mt Ophir, Kinabalu, Trusmadi. If i recall there were close to 30 in our group and only 7 made it to the summit and vegetation was very very thick before it got the stony part near the summit. The climb was very wet and there was no laban rata, or sayat-sayat to seek refuge, all we had was the dome tents we carried..
This was back then in the 90s....not sure about the state of the mountain or paths on it now...if i go up there again im sure not going to lug a dslr up myself..
