I thought my balls were the lump in my chest that time. LOL.
It’s a 1 ½- 2 hour climb to the summit from the jump off point. There is a trail from our jump off point which will eventually fork into two trails. One can easily find this place as a large wooden plank landmark the area. One trail is leading to the other side of the beak which is Naic, Cavite which I one can set up camp for the night, and the other one, which we always took, leads right to the beak. Word of advice, rest at the fork if you want to take the route we took. This is the start of the “imba” trail as one from our group calls it. This is where the real ascent begins.
This is where the fork is.
After struggling from the exhausting trail, the reward is the view.
The photos from the first hike were awesomely good because it was sunset and Jojo brought along a tripod and a flash. It was like a photo shoot up above the mountaintop. To see the photos click. The photos from the second hike were nevertheless picture perfect. Thanks again to Herbie. The weather cooperated; it was sunny, clear skies and not windy.
