Double Traverse with Malaysians

Posted by on May 26, 2013

On January 25-28, 2013 a group of Sixteen Malaysian Mountaineers headed by Ooi Soon Lee(Shun Li) made an epic  climb to the highest point in the Philippines, Mt. Apo using the toughest and the most technical trail to the summit which is the “Unhospitable Tamayong Trail” passing Mt. Talomo peak  and exit at Sta. Cruz trail by way of the Boulder Face making the climb a double traverse.

During this climb, the whole group( together with 12 of my crew) experienced long walks through long ascend, deep cliffs , river crossing under the jungles canopy  and enduring the rugged open boulders for  three(3) nights and four(4) days.

This climb was done following the appropriate time management as designed for the Itinerary of the group, making a successful outcome of the climb enough for the climbers to enjoy their hike , experience nature first hand and back to civilization on time. Thanks to their team leader and the whole group for keeping up with us and being prepared for this climb.

Here are some of the snaps taken from this climb,,,,,
