This time, I’ll be stricter with the following rules:
1. NO TRAINING CLIMB: NO CLIMB
2. NO PRE-CLIMB: NO CLIMB
The two rules may be waived only under EXCEPTIONAL circumstances!
I don’t want this expedition to end up like the rather bitter conflict between Ms B.E. and a mountaineering group during their Mt Pulag climb. I don’t wish to include on the list any nuisance participants! If you think you will be liability to the group, you may join other open climbs during the Holy Week! Being a BEGINNER DOESN’T DISCQUALIFY you from being a part of the climb. Being a veteran and/or being a friend of mine DON’T GUARANTEE YOU ANY SLOT on the list. Let the training climbs decide for you!
