My friend and I were with 5 locals who urged us to try climbing. There was no gear and what we used were only our hands. In the middle of the climb, we were crawling like ants because the slope was kind of steep which makes it difficult to maintain the balance. That crawling went on for 30 minutes, I think, and the total duration of the climb was more than 1 hour. When we reached the peak, gee, it was one flat grassy area which can fit an airport. You can guess that we went down in the same style that we went up, i.e. in a crawling position.
PS. My cousin lived near that mountain until now although I haven't been there for more than 20 years.
Your adventures are awesome! Crawling like an ant. well I did get the point though. A similar climb I had faced when climbing a rocky mountain once. Although it wasn't crawling exactly but since we had no gear we had to use bare hands.
