Big Al Conquers Mt. Batur

So I head out on Sunday morning at 2am with no sleep to do the 1700+ meter climb of the Mt. Batur volcano in Bali.
(Mt. Batur kicked the shizzle out of my - it is the leading contender for the Big Al "My Daddy" Bitchslap Award 2006)

It was approximately a 1.5 hour hike up the volcano with my guide Nol, a native Balinese. I had a choice of climbing this volcano or Mt. Agung which was 2x's the height. I was a little disappointed at first that I chose Mt. Batung, but after the hike I'm really glad I did. It kicked the crap out of me. It was a lot tougher than I expected, but I came out uninjured - unlike some of us who can't do a really easy stroll onto Half Dome w/o spraining their ankles.
(Nol & Big Al. This guy is great. Look out for a few promo plugs of him for BigAlsHouse.com )

Anyways, I got to the top with plenty of time to check out sunrise. The view was pretty awesome from the top. I saw the whole island and the nearby island of Lombok, another Indonesian tourist spot. I think the best part was seeing the Southern Hemisphere night sky. I saw a ton of stars, the Milky Way Galaxy and the Southern Cross constellation.

I made the hike back done in the same 1.5 hours - just in time for me to get back to my hotel, catch a ride to the airport and make my flight Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Lots to report from there... until next time.
