Climbed Mt. Merapi volcano in central-java, on the 27th October. Unfortunately we could not climb to the peak to get a view of the crater. As we were preparing  to climb the peak at 0300, we witnessed a gas explotion from the volcano, that started with a brief but distinct cracking-sound, that was heard as far as 3km away from the volcano. It also disbursed small quantities of fine-white ash. The volcano has shown elevated activity in Ocober 2012.
