This was an invite climb therefore I have no accounts on the logistics for our climb. We rented an L300 van to and from, Manila-Sapang Uwak-Manila thus the commute was a hassle-free for us.
Our Team Lead, Jay Masauring, coordinated with the Tourism Associate at Sapang Uwak to ensure that the hike is Legal.
The trail was paved, a road construction is being developed as we saw Road-Construction equipment and machines along the trail until Miyamit Summit. Also, the trail all the way to Miyamit Summit was the stretched venue for CM50 (Clark-Miyamit) Trail Races.
This hike was a lucky but unlucky. It was gloomy throughout the day, an advantage on our side because the trail is 100% open. A 42KM, to and from, with a lot of asymmetrical folds terrain type really spiced up the entire trek. A really challenge I would say
Water sources are scarce and they can only be found far far away before reaching Miyamit Summit.
Reaching the highest peak of Pinatubo via this side will pass about an 80 degrees wall, proper balance and footwork to ensure not to fall from this 20 - 30 mins decent. After crossing a dead river, another hour or two of full assault to the summit.
For trail runners or hikers who wants challenge, this trail is one of the best option to choose from.
