Mt. Guiting-Guiting (G2) in the province of Romblon is one of the toughest mountains to climb in the entire Philippines. At least, that's what I've read from Wikipedia and every where in the internet.
Our group of five was supposed to climb it this weekend but due to tropical depression Crising, we decided to abort this trip and move it for next week. Our contact in Romblon has also forbidden us to proceed with the plan.
Naturally, everyone in the group felt disappointed. As for me, I felt the energy sucked out of me when I found out about the tropical depression and that we had to delay - when I can practically see Romblon looming in front of me, but I have consoled myself with the fact that I have prayed for this and if it's not going to be this weekend, then so be it. God has better plans, and you know what, He has a sense of humor too. The typhoon's name is Crising - sounds a lot like my name, and it entered in the Mindoro area which is next to Romblon. I checked the weather report this morning and it looks like Romblon is going to be squeezed with bad weather - there's typhoon Crising moving towards the direction of Palawan, and there's a low pressure area estimated in the Catanduanes area. Weather is quite an issue for a successful G2 climb so we are taking every necessary precaution. We want to get there, but we also want to get back home and tell our tales.
Our group had a con call this morning for some more planning and everyone is excited for next week. Hay! A few more days to go. Please help me pray for a successful climb.
