|the elusive Mt Timbak sea of clouds|
Many climbers strive to cover heights and distances in a short period of time. But what’s the point? You don’t have to go to Benguet and be absent from work to do this! You can do this at PBCom Tower or do an MRT-LRT1 loop. You miss a lot of magic in your haste. If you were going for an FKT, I would understand. But if it’s your first time in Tenglawan, Tabayoc and Timbak, it’s pointless to hurry. If you want to call Luzon 3-2-1 a feat, ask yourself whether a jeepney ride from KM 55 to Ballay is a feat! Mt Timbak can no longer be considered a good climb these days. The road is already paved all the way down to the other side. If you wanna have a taste of Timbak, spend the night there. And you might just get lucky to see its full splendor.

With the introduction of skyrunning in the country, the age of glorious mountain conquests is long gone. It is the time to enjoy the views. Almost all knife edges and killer trails have been killed! It’s time to kill time!

|The first Luzon 3-2-1 was definitely worth the while. These days, it's nothing more than a long 'jeepney' ride.|
