  • Description 

    Likely first done back in the wonder-years of the Dong's pre-history. Probably named by Marcelo whilst on his tour de force through the Auditorium. Definitely has seen its share of adventures.

    If you're not afraid, go do it.

    Followed Marcelo on this. He didn't bring any gear of the right size, and half of his pro came raining down on me once the rope went taut at the anchors. He ran out the crux over shit gear like a true champion. There were anchors at the top, so it clearly wasn't an FA.

    He named the route immediately after our descent. It is after the "souvenir" a friend brought back from Cebu.
