After 3 weeks of taking a break from the trails because of sickness and other reasons, I was finally able to climb again and it happened unexpectedly. With the help of my running friend, Patrick, I was able to stand on top of Mt. Salakot’s Nalayag monolith!

Cuyapo to Tarak ridge, I looked for an available slot right away.
