Katsuu isn't the tallest peak in the region, but it has an open top, so it has a great view of the island and the ocean. The climb was challenging, going straight up hill instead of in switchbacks. It took our group about 30 minutes to make it to the top. This was a very rocky path, and I wouldn't... More

Little did I realize, that climbing a peak opposite to Mt. Katsu, I would eventually be at a higher elevation than my friend. As it turned out, I took some photos of... More

I climbed this mountain with three of my friends last weekend. Beware that this isn't the easiest trek on the island but when you reach the top the view is more than worth it. The "trail" is quite rocky and you will have to literally crawl over some spots. There are a few caves on this mountain also but I... More
