For the first time, PinoyMountaineer is organizing a climb for the twofold purpose of gathering readers of the blog and other mountaineers together and supporting charitable endeavors ranging from donating medicines to the Kalanguya tribes in Mt. Pulag to helping improve the conditions in PGH Pediatric Wards.
The choice of Mt. Pulag, via the Ambangeg-Ambangeg trail, reflects the emphasis of the annual climb: this is not hardcore climbing challenge, but an easy trail with beautiful views – undoubtedly Mt. Pulag is one of the best loved mountains by Filipino mountaineers. Interaction among the participants is highly encouraged.
Everyone is welcome to join the climb and support this event.
