Use whatever route you prefer to Ulu Yam (Batu Caves/Dam Road or Rawang/Batang Kali)

Although Batu Caves town isn't usually too jammed, the hare suggests the following stress-free / "backway" route via DUKE/Batu Caves:
From Duke Highway spur towards Kuantan and take exit 3310A (Gombak, Petaling Jaya)
Turn left and keep in left hand lane up ramp signed "Sri Gombak".
At traffic lights set tripometer to 0km, turn right
0.4km straight at traffic light
1.6km straight at traffic light
2.0km straight at traffic light and over a bunch of speed bumps
2.5km turn right (between telephone boxes and just before 10 storey flats w/blue bottoms on right hand side) onto rough road with potholes
3.0km (just after sharp left bend) turn right onto Jalan Manggis (signed)
3.2km turn left on Jalan Manggis (signed)
4.8km turn right onto Batu Dam Road (unsigned - but major road)
Proceed about 22km of scenic, hilly drive until bridge and T-Junction.

At T-Junction, turn left into Ulu Yam (signed Genting) and reset tripometer again.
0.9km in the center of town after the 7-Eleven, turn right (signed Genting)
3.0km turn right at main intersection (signed Genting) - This is the "OLD Lucky Like Restaurant" intersection and location of On-On after the run.
7.5km and turn RIGHT into abandoned housing project. Look for PHHH Hash Signs. Follow signs to parking.

Note that you can use this same route from MRR2 instead of DUKE:
If coming from Jln Kuching on MRR2, exit immediately at bottom of long flyover AFTER Batu Caves. Turn left at "diamond marked" retaining wall. Set tripometer and go.
If from Melawati, etc., follow signs to "Sri Gombak", go up ramp and reset tripometer at traffic light as above.
