Disclaimer: Mt. Binacayan is one of the many rocky mountains in Rizal. The rocks are sharp and pointed from edges to the center, some of which are so big I needed some boost and lift to climb.

If there is a province that is known for its mountain, Rizal is definitely it. Aside from Mt. Cayabu and Mt. Maynuba circuit that we did a few months ago, my co-teachers and I again organized another trail hike to Montalban, Rizal and that is Mt. Binacayan and Mt. Hapunang Banoi.

It all started with climbing a mountain that eventually led to another making me unstoppable. I owe my knack for adventure from scaling mountains. And I am so glad that I am finally back doing it since I haven't been active for the last 2 years (2015 and 2016).
My trilogy climb during the 1st week of 2017 reminded me of how much I have missed (and why I will always be fascinated by) climbing mountains. It is the counterparts between climbing and living that enthralls me. It is such a great opportunity to unravel and to appreciate my strengths and limits. A recent trek to one of Rizal's clim ...
