Mt. Maarat, Rizal PART 2. We successfully reached the summit of Mt. Maarat or Table Top Maarat. With the weather looking gloomy, we still pushed through with our plan to camp atop the mountain. We started our ascent at 3pm and reached the summit at quater to 4pm; however, upon reaching the summit, it started to drizzle, thus making it quite challenging to setup camp. It was muddy, breezy, and COLD. We started our descent at quarter to 7 and boy, were we in for a surprise.
