About Apo Island:

the climbing face in Apo Island is more of a Boulder, it is separated from the main island, it has two routes,one route is a warm-up route it is a moderate one and the other route is name Ritch Bolt which we could describe as a difficult one. Still you have to set up a rig. Suggestion: wear a crag pants, or anything to protect your legs, rock surface is sharp. Bored of Rockclimbing? here you could also go cliff diving, scuba diving, snorkeling, camping, and you can also check out the light tower of apo island, there you can enjoy the sights of the whole island, see the sunrise and sunset, you can climb the tower, and it would only fit 5 to 6 persons. FUN HUH?!!
