We were suppose to start our climb around 6:00am-6:30am but we got lost and went to the other town instead of Brgy Mascap. So we started our climb around 8:30am, usually it takes around 2 hours to get to the summit but it took us 3 hours because of the heat.

Had lunch at the summit - it's the first pic. Then we started our descent which took us 3 hours.

Make sure to bring at least 4 Liters of water in case you'll climb it this summer. There are limited tindahan you can buy water from. Maybe if it's not that hot 2-3 liters will suffice.
