Trip report:

I mapped the route and largely navigated by Apple Maps. Was led astray a couple times by closures on account of construction. Opted to gradually snake north and tried to stay off the serpent-laden trails after an early encounter :-)

This was part 2 of the "Double Durian" so I started the run right after my flight landed from Singapore so legs were a little tight and it was a struggle start to finish while hauling 11kg rucksack (very slowly) over Kuala Lumpur's rolling hills.
