2 Teams, 1 Mountain

Mt. Banahaw is still closed for hikers and mountaineers however a permit is given if a Climb organized has a purpose, like Clean up drive, Tree planting and the like. Luckily, PACKERS got invited by Sir Onin's Team.
Our entry point was at Brgy. Luquin, San Pablo City and the first half of the trail was more of gradual terrain and from time to time we passed by some farm.
My first 9/9 (Difficulty Level) mountain... The greatest challenge encountered in this so called Mountaineering life of mine. Mt. Guiting Guiting (G2) is where my mind was set to be the first 9/9 mountain I will climb however failure to join the G2 Dayhike set by PACKERS, my dream went astray.
Bumped to this video posted in FB, Mt. Sicapoo became my Target. I shared the video and got some positive reactions and confirmations from my friends online..... exchange insights...... several preclimbs......then we're ready to take the challenge.
November 1 - 4 were the days when 12 of us faced the challenge, 11 were able to reach the summit, 9 reached the Penguins Peak.
Day 1 of our Itinerary went haywire when Sir Chong didn't make it to the 8:00pm departure and left Manila around 11.30 instead. We had the entire first half of the day roaming around the City.
Took pictures of the Sinking Bell Tower, once an old Red Cross building turn to SM Hypermarket and the Provincial Hall.
