Mount Tagapo, also known as "Susong Dalaga" is located in Barangay Janosa, Binangonan, Province of Rizal. Rated 2/9 as its Difficulty and considered as Minor Climb.
Why Susong Dalaga? sabi ni wikipedia :Two huge mound of conical hills resembling the female breast, which are the highest peak of the Island. Mas makikita mo ang form neto pagnasa Mt. Sembrano daw.
Me.... My Solo Climb
Matagal ko ng gusto magSolo Climb kaso wala lang akong "guts" na gawin eto dahil sa possibleng mawawala ako along the trail. Although marami na akong naakyat na mga Bundok, minsan naliligaw pero iba parin ang feeling pagnaligaw ka na ikaw lang magisa.
Pero nagiba ang ihip ng hangin the day prior sa akyat na to. June 2 when I received an sms from P.A.C.K.E.R.S na mareresched ang Cristobal Climb (June 3 ang original date) due to Typhoon Ambo. With that, medyo dismay sa news because it's been a while na din na hindi ako nakaakyat. So I went online, googled something about Solo Backpacking and Solo Climb and luckily I was routed to Batang Lakwatsero's blogsite.
He wrote about his first Solo Climb sa Mt. Tagapo and how he successfully conquered the summit. Challenged and inspired by his entry nagplanned na ako na by Monday (06.04) I will conquer that summit (papalipasin ko lang Typhoon Ambo).
It was 10.30 in the evening of June 2 when I decided na imove ang akyat ko to an earlier date, the next day. Baba ng unit at punta ng pinakamalapit na 7/11 para bumili ng Trek food at Gatorade. Got my "daypack" backpack at nilagay ang isang pair ng damit, extra shoes (dahil alam ko na maputik), hydration pack at si Chocobo.
I left Manila around 4:45am para mahabol ang 6:00am na bangka. Note: To get to Binangonan Port, ride a jeep sa EDSA-Crossing kung saan ang terminal neto for 40.00 pesos only.
IT was Sunday so walang traffic at madaling araw kaya lumilipad ang nasakyan kong jeep.
