Adding to our previous posts on events this climbing season, I must hasten to add the annual Mt. Ugo Summer Climb, now on its 7th year. Here is the announcement from Lisa Diase, the Tourism Officer of Itogon, Benguet (to whom I am grateful for facilitating nice experiences in Mt. Ugo):

CORDILLERA CLIMB FOR A CAUSE
Hiker Marianne dela Pena informed me about a “Climb for a Cause” by VirtualTourist members. They plan to bring supplies (clothes, food, books, etc.) along. Says she, “300 families in the community of Barangay Bashoy will benefit from this grand activity. We eNCouRage yoU to shARe yOur spare tO oUR needy fellas!” I think Brgy. Bashoy is within the vicinity of Mt. Pulag but it does not include a trek up the mountain. For inquiries, contact these numbers: Emkei 09061849940, Waan 09092967907, and Barbie 09194890949.
