Mountain climbing is an activity prone to risk and not to be taken lightly no matter how easy or benign your chosen peak might seem. The old proverb, "Looks can be deceiving" is applicable at all time. The mountains are filled with danger and drama most especially here in the Philippines due to tropical climate that gives mountaineering more challenging sport. Lightning can stab out of a clear sky. Thunderstorms quickly form and drench you with rain and sleet.
Difficulties can slow you, climbers can have an accident, causing all kinds of complications. If you’re a novice and inexperienced in the ways of the mountains, then it’s wise to go with more experienced companions or a guide. You can learn from them what it takes to be safe in the mountains.
The mountains draw climbers who love the natural world and possess an adventurous spirit. To reach the summit of a mountain peak is not always easy, but it always seems worthwhile. It always seems worth the effort to stand atop a mighty peak and look across the world with the eyes of a soaring eagle.
