Sometimes my inner adventurous self would want to find some thrill, so I look for an activity that will satisfy that desire. This time, I dared my self to do and extreme sport. Together with 2 of my roommates, we went to Poog to try the rock climbing for the first time. We packed our lunch and our bag, ready for an adventure.

When we saw the crag, we suddenly got nervous and excited at the same time. We set up a small picnic at the ground while our guide, Enie set up the harness to a beginner's route. It was supposedly easy but for us first timers it was still challenging.

The Poog crag was personally bolted by our guide Enie Yonson and his team. It also has a lot of bumps and holes for footholds, handholds, and ledges which makes it good for beginners and first-timers. Enie was also patient enough to encourage us to continue the climb as he holds the harness for us. He also taught us where to hold and where to stand. It was such an exhilarating experience.

So if you are up to the challenge of rock climbing even without experience then the Poog Crag may be for you. Climb at your own risk.

How to get to Poog Crag, Cebu for Rock Climbing.
1. Take a bus from Cebu City South Bus Terminal going to Toledo and tell the conductor you will get off at Upper Poog-Toledo Highway crossing. You will notice a byroad going to the mountainside with stores in the area. If you forgot your lunch or you feel hungry you can also buy food from the stores.
