X’mas Climb 2010, the highest X’mas Party in GenSan
The Sarangani Bay Area Outdoor Club (SBAOC) and the Friends of Mt. Matutum (FOMM) are at it again!
Just when you think these outdoor sports enthusiasts and nature lovers should be resting for the Christmas season comes this invitation for another activity which they have dubbed “Christmas Climb 2010” to the Sanchez Peak, Olympog, General Santos City.
Set for two days beginning at noon on December 18, 2010 and until the following day, December 19, Christmas Climb 2010 wants to be known as the Highest Christmas Party in GenSan at 730 meters above sea level!
Here is their itinerary:

Although not yet totally open to the public, the 5th Mountain of Balakayo Park ziplines boast of a spectacular view of Gensan and Sarangani Bay plus a look at the lush forests of GenSan.
