I was early at the meeting place.
We should be meeting at 4am inside KFC Coastal. I was there before 3am. It was a cold morning. I was right about bringing a thick sweatshirt. By 4am when the group is already complete, we headed to the Bus Terminal at Coastal Mall. To Evercrest! The jump-off for Mount Batulao. We ate breakfast first at a nearby store whose name I forgot. They have a delicious-looking menu.
By 6:28am, we’re already walking to the gate of Evercrest. We opted not to get a guide. We’d just ask around – if ever we get lost. We did! LOLS.
Anyways, the route to Peak 8 was a bit easy. Going to Peak 9 up to the Summit was a bit challenging already. Top that with the Rappeling down from the Summit to the old trail’s Camp 7!
From Camp 7 to 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1 – it was all just easy. We even stopped to eat. Camp 1 to Peak 1 is where the challenge is. 🙂
The heat of the sun made it all challenging.
It was a relaxed adventure. Lots of time to enjoy the beauty of God’s creation. We stopped to rest. We took our time on the descents and ascents. No pressure at all.

I tried my best to beat my personal cut-off. 4pm at home!
Thank God! IN at 3:55pm!
All thanks to the Lord God Almighty!
