This is a tough trek. You do a boat ride, then an easy 8.5k walk to the lodge. All fine. The next day you almost immediately start going up, and it just gets steeper and steeper. Walking poles are a waste of time - don't bother with them. Slippery roots, sharp rocks, and you want your hands to be available. Do take gloves. It is hot and humid all the way up - you will sweat buckets!
The top portion of the climb uses ladders and ropes, great fun. However, don't go expecting an amazing view - there is a small lookout area and the pinnacles are just a few sharp bits of rock jutting through the canopy. Not exactly breathtaking. BUT, you do feel you've accomplished a tough walk in the heart of the jungle, so I would recommend it for that reason.
We went with Planet Borneo, and they were excellent, with our guide Roland being absolutely wonderful. If you use a park guide, you have to look after yourself a lot more and cook your own meals - Roland looked after us brilliantly and made us delicious dinners and breakfasts.
