My Night Climb on Aug. 1, 2013
by Duc Su
Shrine on top of Yoshida Trail
I successfully climbed Mt. Fuji for the second time with two other comrades from different countries. I guided them on the popular Yoshida trail from the 5th station to the summit.
The conditions during the night climb weren't perfect nor were they bad. It was mostly cloudy throughout the night, with light to moderate rain for about an hour.
This particular climb was to reach the summit and hike to the opposite side of the crater which we didn't do. I am tempted to do it again in about a week and stand on top of the official highest point, 3,776m, on Mt. Fuji.
