They say the more the merrier, but a small group makes better bonds. It was a small close-knit group of 5 participants, plus 3 guides. We started our assault up Mt Maculot
via the new trail at exactly 0800H and we were able to arrive back in Manila at around 1400H. Leaving everybody enough time to do other sunday-related activities with their families. Overall, it was a nice way to shed some sweat on a sunday morning, meet new people, and enjoy the mountain view.
