It's as if I can't go without rock climbing every year. This time, we tried out another crag, the Poog Crag which is also located in Toledo and is only about 15 minutes away from Cantabaco (which is one of the best rock climbing areas in the Philippines) via Habal-habal.
The popularity of rock climbing in Cebu and the Philippines, as a whole has seen a slowly but surely increase of interest in the said activity. Now, we have more choices other than the usual beach-ing, waterfall chasing, mountain hiking or other outdoor and tourism activities.

To the frequent rock climbers, poog crag is known to be one of the most gnarly rock faces (daghan buslot, bumps and holes) in Cebu. Because of this feature, the Poog crag is ideal for novice climbers with a lot of bumps, and holes that make great handholds and footholds.
|There are shady areas and a tree with a swing to play with|
|Plenty of photo-opportunities as well|
|Finally succeeded to do my goal of selfie-while climbing the crag pose|
