Takbo: Conquer Assault 55k Maragondon Trio

Saturday to Sunday
September 21-22, 2019

Hello everyone, it’s me! I’m back after a long hiatus from blogging. Life happened, and by that, I mean that I was busy playing Minecraft. But nature calls and I must answer. This is the account of my first long distance race for the second half of 2019.

Akyat: Nasugbu Pentology: 5 peaks in 1 Day

On a scale just a little bit crazier than the Nasugbu Quadrilogy, I celebrated this year’s Independence day by going on a short hike with my trail friends up and down the many slopes of Nasugbu. This is a short summary of our Nasugbu Pentology.

Akyat: Nasugbu Quadrilogy, 4 peaks in 1 day

March 25, 2016

I stood on the campsite of my mother mountain and looked up at the summit, still barely visible as the moon shone against it at around 04:30 in the morning. I can faintly make out the parrot’s beak beside it and a thought entered my head: After summiting this mountain, I have three more to go for today.

I joined a recon run for the upcoming PDL 42 event organized by Conquer Absolute Mountaineering Club. It was a blast and it also marked my 3rd sumitting of my mother mountain, Mt. Palay-palay.

Akyat: Up the Parrot’s Beak Again

September 25, 2015

It’s been long overdue, but finally I was able to have my revenge climb on my mother mountain! My friend organized a hike with her friends and she invited me to go. Since it was Mt. Palay-palay, I couldn’t say no.  I’ve already said before that I want to go back to Pico de Loro and finally, the time has come!

Akyat: Up the Parrot’s Beak


December 13, 2014

This was the day I went on my first legitimate mountain climb. And for virgins, there’s no better way to pop your cherry than by climbing up Mount Palay-palay, better known as Pico de Loro. Warning, this post is gonna be image-heavy. And most of these will be images of me, so you have been warned.
