Mt Manabu to Biak na Bundok to Mt Manabu Jump off via hidden trail
For the past months , Ive been hiking with my new found group that was not so veterans yet in terms of hiking experience. And they gave me some contentment and new found wisdom in my hiking sense. Climbing with veterans is another experience, you will not worried that much with your companion because you know that they know what they're doing and can finish the trek without much issue. However with the group of newbie, the experience is totally different. You need to look on each and everyone of them and see if they need rest, if they can still continue, which one is having problems with his/her load. Being a climb leader for two different groups means you need to adapt with different persons and situations, and that will make you more matured and somehow be a better version of you.

According to Mang Mario theres a new traverse that will exit to Tiaong Quezon. Also theres a trail that will exit to San Pablo via sky way and the easiest traverse would be the exit to Malipunyo or Manabu.
