As of March 2016, pinagbabawal na nila ang pag akyat sa Monolith. Pero pag dating nio sa summit,some guide will offer. Hindi ganun katindi ang bantay sa lugar, I mean,kahit bawal,makakaakyat ka pa din. I asked my group kung gusto nila. Safety first sabi ko,pero dahil sa madami ang umaakyat noong araw na yon, kahit alam namin na mali, umakyat pa din sila,tama nga nmn,kng time mo na,time mo na…”masaya akong mamatay sa bundok” sabi ng isa. Ok nmn at buhay  pa din silang lahat. Pero hwag po gayahin… sumunod tayo sa mga pinatutupad ng DENR.
