WEEKEND ADVENTURE | Rock Climbing at Cantabaco
Earlier this year, I was invited by a friend on their weekend adventure---Rock Climbing. Who in their right mind, would turn down an invitation like this? Definitely not me.

I'm not familiar with the Rock climbing world, but according to a friend, Cebu houses the best wall for rock climbing in the Philippines. This wall is located in Cantabaco, Cebu. I'm pretty sure most rock climbing enthusiasts are familiar with this.

We had rock climbing 101 when we arrived in the area. They orient us about the basics of rock climbing, the gears, and the grades of the wall. Since we're still newbie at this sport, they accompany us to a wall which is for beginners.

I was so proud of myself when I managed to reach the top, on my first climb. Even though I was ready to give up halfway through. It gives me a kind of "high" which I can't explain. All I know is, I want to climb again and again.

We climb 3 different routes that day. Because we enjoyed so much, we didn't notice the time and miss our lunch. Although we could have eaten our lunch in the area, but no one ever considers bringing lunch packs. We had our late lunch though, on our way home.
