    Hi there if I'm looking to book the 2D1N mount Kinabalu climb with Torque walk viaferrata for 2 people, do i select the date that we are planning to do the actual climb or the pickup from Kota Kinabalu? Also, it says the head torch is a must- is this provided or should we buy it in KK? And wanted to double check that accomodation the day before the climb is provided as well as the accomodation on the mountain? Thanks so much!
