Mountaineering Kanka Robbie has been using the summer holidays to make another claim for Ankaragucu. This time he was in was south-east Asia. From Mountaineering Kanka himself:
"The picture viewed is of yours truly at the top of Gunung Agung, at 3142 meters, Bali's tallest volcano. So now I guess we can say that Gucu can claim the entire island. The climb wasn't terribly difficult but the first two thirds of it was spent trudging through the jungle in the dark while climbing Banyan tree roots and walking into giant spiders' webs with only a crappy Panasonic torch to comfort me. Good fun! The crater was awesome and you can see the offerings to the mountain, as it is holy to the Balinese, in the lower left hand of the photo. I hope we have lots of folks turn up at Gucu games this season. I will see all of you there!"
This man is fast becoming a legend having earlier claimed Hasan Dag and then Kilimanjaro for Ankaragucu. As for Gencler, so far all we've got is Mt. Bolu (via a ski lift)
