Photo of the Day: Magiting sa Mt. Guiting Guiting ng Romblon

When it comes to mountain climbing, we’re so much like Jon Snow — that guy who we thought would survive the killing spree of G.R.R. Martin, at least in the last season — we really know nothing. We never got past the planning stage. The initial planning, we hate to admit this, involves an easy trek to Mt. Pinatubo’s crater. Just a little heart condition, you see, and we understand that if something happens, it will be hours before medical assistance comes along, pretty much like what recently happened to a weekend climber at Mt. Pulag. We’ve heard a Pulag climb now requires a medical certificate. Really? That’s red tape, plain and simple. If we have a heart condition and we want to take the risk, require us to sign a waiver (which you guys require, anyway); not a medical certificate, for crying out loud. Anyway, sorry, we’re wandering off (pun intended). The heart of this post is this awesome photo by Jonathan Reales — a programmer, hiker, aspiring landscape/nature photographer, and a dreamer who believes “do it with passion or not at all” (follow his Instagram account, @rainbowchaser_ph). Cool. Looking at the tags of his photo, we gathered it’s G2 Romblom. Took us a while to find out that G2 is Mt. Guiting Guiting, a Romblon peak that has gained the respect of many mountaineers because of its level of difficulty. See? We know nothing. But we know we won’t be able to climb that mountain in this lifetime. Click the photo to enlarge:
