FIRST MINOR CLIMB
SEPTEMBER 15-16, 2012
Elevation: 2178 ASL
Location: Ternate, Cavite / Nasugbu, Batangas
Pico de Loro is the highest point in Cavite. It is situated in the boundary of Cavite and Batangas. It rewards climbers with the view of the Manila Bay and the Mountains of Batulao and Talamitam on the other side. The peak is called “Parrot’s Peak” due to the shape of the summit that is parrot shaped. The other story is that it was named Pico de Loro because of the parrot bird that local encounters during food hunt.

First Minor climb is all set on August 18-19, 2012. The activity will be held in one of the popular climbing destination in the south, Pico de Loro. This is also the site of several Introductory Climbs of the group.
The Indoor Climbing was held on August 4, 2012. The activity focused on having their group (Batch 10) being responsible for each one’s safety. Being mindful on all safety requirements creates a more fun and safer activity.
Prior to the activity, they were given tasks and made decisions resulting to a successful activity. The indoor climbing activity was supposed to be over a week ago but due to some reason, it was rescheduled on that weekend. It was the decision and effort of this batch that the activity pushed through.
No matter how small or big an activity is, the only one responsible to making it happen is themselves. Being committed follows several factors down to the easiest responsibility of having constant communication.
On August 4, 2012, we will have the Indoor Wall Climbing. This is to prepare the trainees for terrains requiring minimal skills in climbing walls. Minimal knowledge on wall climbing lessens the chances of getting injured when taking vertical ascents.
During the early 2000, the group frequents the Power Up Gym in Pasig until the time that the Kapitolyo gym was closed out.
