Kinabalu

Beautiful and exotic … also, risky, rocky, steep

Mt. Kinabalu on exotic Borneo Island in the South Pacific is a beautiful, alluring destination. But even with years of rugged training, I found the 45-degree ascent to the 13,436-foot summit surprisingly challenging.

During the two-day trek, I pondered the similarities between the climb and the challenges of corporate communications that many companies face — do-able, but risky.

My mountain guide, Tubek, made all the difference in my success. With steady assurance, he was there when I felt imperiled or tired or uncertain of the terrain.
