A dry season on the mountain is really relative to the other months, the very rainy ones. Otherwise, on the mountain the weather is capricious and therefore proper rain gear is advisable at all times. While an umbrella can shield you from the rain, its use is not very practical for various reasons.
<Some places the trail may not be well defined. As such you will need to go under overhangs.
<!The wind does get quite powerful and the umbrella may blow over.
