Everything set for Annual Amputee Climb on Saturday

Everything is going ahead as planned for the Annual Amputee Climb – the first-ever in the Philippines. I would like to thank our partners – SMART Communications, Physicians for Peace, and the Mu Sigma Phi Fraternity for making this event possible. Let us pray for good weather and a safe, successful climb on Saturday for climbers and amputees alike.

The Climb Secretariat has already emailed a primer to all participants who have confirmed. Please read the instructions carefully so that our itinerary will run smoothly. For further inquiries please email amputee.climb@gmail.com or contact Marcus, Climb Secretariat, at 09273851191.

i would like to ask the participants to keep the comments constructive. gideon and the organizers did a superb job, but of course there is always room for improvement. they even handed out a survey form on our way home, for the purpose of soliciting our opinion regarding the climb. at the end of the day, we are all mountaineers, regardless or being participants or organizers. let us focus on the fact that it was a successfull climb, as the amputees did reach the summit and we all made it home. congratulations to the organizers, the amputees and to all of us!

are the team leaders newbies? were they reminded the what the goal of the climb is? isn't to assist the amputee's rather than overtaking them just to take pictures/videos of themselves or the hike. also why is it the sweeper who carries the med kit at the front enjoying and no where to be found when one of the amputee's it already tolerating pain due to muscle stress. after reaching the summit only few assisted the amputee's to go down. was it only for the credits? at the last stop over, the itinerary was not followed due to the late comers from breaks. overall it was a fun for the first annual amputee climb. kudos to the amputees!
