Description 

Luzon is the largest island in the Philippines. It is located in the northernmost region of the archipelago, and is also the name of one of the three primary island groups in the country centred on the island (the other two being the Visayas and Mindanao).

Luzon as an island group includes Luzon proper, the Batanes and Babuyan groups of islands to the north, and the outlying islands of Catanduanes, Marinduque, Masbate, Romblon, and Mindoro. Luzon is the economic and political center of the Philippines, being home to the country's capital city, Manila.

Getting There 

Most people enter the Philippines at Manila's Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA). Immigration is usually straightforward. You may be asked to show an ongoing ticket, and most nationalities are issued a 21-day visa on the spot.

This was the first climb I finished, and the only real climb we were able to do before we were about to run out of daylight and had to leave.The climb starts on a massive stalactite resembling a uvula and follows a jug haul line all the way to the tree above where one is able to stand.The crux of the climb would have to be how sharp the holds are, which gave my hands a good deep slicing....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
