After our exhausting climb in Lake Janagdan, we were met by a spectacular scenery, yet we were also greeted by danger that lurked in the corner. As I trod along the majestic trail, there was an instant when I held on to a thorny plant and the thorns pierced both of my palms. I almost cried because of the pain. Watch that video (https://wp.me/p6aPTy-Ld) if you haven’t seen it yet.
The next day we summitted the peak of the highest mountain in Eastern Visayas, Mt. Aminduen also known as Alto Peak. I thought it would just be an ordinary hard climb but I was wrong. The climb was really tough especially for a beginner like me. It was really, really hard. It was basically a technical climb. There were parts of the trail where we used ropes where we held on while climbing up.
**I’m not a pro, I’m just a beginner in this mountaineering world, in case you are wondering why I’m wearing that kind of outfit, (walk in the park lang ang peg).HAHA!
Anyway,without any further delay, here’s my vlog about my first ever major climb.

**Since I cannot edit my video, there’ s a bit of correction in my vlog. “Use gloves to have more friction and not reduce. Thank you so much to the one who corrected me. 😘😘”
I apologize in advance for my awkwardness, but believe me I tried. I’m not good in speaking too, so please bear with me. Hehe 🙂. If you do like my video don’t forget to subscribe my YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/c/chasing_potatoes. Thank you so much. 🙂♥

Some photos taken during our climb in ALTO PEAK
Those naughty potatoes roll so fast that I could hardly catch up with them in ALTO PEAK. I wonder what place will they be venturing next. So stay tuned for my next chasing potato adventure.
