TC2 Mariveles mountain ridges

The second training climb with BMC is well over, it was a great nature experience as I hope you can see from the pictures in the picasa album.

The treck took place along the mountain ridges of Mount Mariveles, Balaan, a 2-3 hour drive north of Manila (when there is little traffic).

We mostly walked "inside" the forest and had to use ropes in some places. The weather was on our side with clouds the first day, a little rain during the night and partially sunny the next day.

Here is the view we had before entering "The Jungle" and grass and big trees were the basic scenery.

Apart from my blisters this was a trouble free treck and we're both looking forward to TC3, a climb that will be over 3 days in colder and higher climate. :-)
