Conquering Mt. Apo @ 65

Posted by on January 1, 2011

On March 7-9, 2011, I had the chance to guide the oldest  foreign climber who summited  Mt. Apo  using Sta. Cruz Trail. Pavel Sedivy , a 65 year old guy from Czech Republic broke the record of David Walladge (60 years old) from Australia who climb with me February last year.

During the first day of our trek Pavel seem to  be slow and having a hard time in his pacing but the  guy from Czech Republic endure it and have enough strength for the 2nd day (March 8,2011) to conquer the Philippines Highest Summit arriving @ 2:30 PM at Davao Side’s summit which is earlier than I’ve expected.

Summit of Mt. Apo ( Davao Side) @ 65

On this climb , he was accompanied by his Son Filip Sedivy  ( a handsome Guy  who looks like Jesus Christ as the locals say )and his girlfriend Catalina Aconstatinesei  a  Romanian National with exquisite beauty.

During this climb we experienced both sunset and sunrise at its best and the weather was so nice that we enjoyed the majestic view at the summit and experienced the best features of the boulders which Mt. Apo could offer to its visitors. A good way to celebrate a guys 65th B-day which is one of the purpose of this Climb.

After the climb the whole group had a good time dip at the hot spring in Lake Agco while remembering the good times we had during that climb and Pavel  promised to break his own record after five years as the Oldest Foreigner who conquered Mt. Apo and I would be waiting for that time to come and be part of it.

    This is one of the views going to Mount Apo. I would love to share our photos during the reopening of Mount Apo Kidapawan Trail, sad to say there’s only few pictures left because we lost our pictures. Here are some of the pictures during the reopening of Mt. Apo and the making of Koong Trail. http://campapo.blogspot.com/2012/05/mt-apo-koong-trail-in-making.html#.T87uWdVYu7g
