After a few months without hike Im back again on the trail. I joined a group of friends who are planning to climb Mt Halcon. This was their first training climb.
The plan was to traverse via morong exit. Due to not properly coordinating with the local contact, the plan was aborted and the group exit via abucay. This is really important, If you plan on doing traverse, tell the person in the registration in the military post, so that they can coordinate it on the morong exit.

Hail Salute on Natibs peak without the view.
I have not joined them on the plan traverse . I call it a day once I set foot on the summit of Mt Natib.  
Always the best way to end a hike.
