Is it still possible to climb taraw cliff all the way?

I heard there had been an accident last year and that there is a new "climb" thats essentially walking up stairs up about half the cliff.

Is it still possible to get a guide to do the full climb the old way? Im aware of the risks and a seasoned rock climber, but are there any guides willing to take you anymore?

Yes, the guides will take you to the top of the cliff.

How hard is the trek? I am a seasoned hiker but would never consider myself a climber....

We asked our hotel and our boat captain two weeks ago. Same answer: You cannot anymore due to an accident. But maybe we just asked the wrong people and you can still find someone who will take you...

yes you can still find people who are willing to do the climb. many locals have done the climb tons of times when it used to be allowed. maybe try asking tricycle drivers.

i never recommend climbing taraw because there have been many accidents over the years.
