Hiking Adventures #44: Mt. Kalawitan - 2nd Major Training Climb for MMS BMC

Almost a month after our 1st major training climb in Mt. Amuyao, we headed to Mountain Province again for our 2nd major training climb in Mt. Kalawitan. This is one of my unforgettable climbs because of the struggles we experienced. Almost all of us was very vocal about not going back to the mountain. However, this climb taught us lessons that would make us better as mountaineers.
