"Unang bolt pa lang, tuwang-tuwa na ako,"
"Even with just the first bolt in, I was already happy"
Fresh from celebrating the arrival of a new decade, Mackie and his bolting team set out on January 6, 2020 to Quezon, Bukidnon with establishing Kiokong's Great White Wall as their objective.
Reach out to the team, he says, they have their own thrill and excitement to share.
From hurdling initial access issues and raising enough funds, down to putting together a team to see the project through, Kuya Mackie was able to establish the longest and tallest multi-pitch line in the country.
Thankfully for Kuya Mackie, dreaming won't have to take another decade. There's the first route already – this striking line literally set in stone – a second one is far from impossible.
