Laging handa dapat brod. Thermal wear or raincoat. Seek shelter. Caves, abondoned nipa haouses, tree house. Gin or alcohol para mainit ang katawan. Well yun ginagawa namin sa lugar namin.  :-D

You need to ride a bus to Quezon, then another bus to the pier then a boat to the island. Never coming back. Nothing special about Cagbalete. IMHO.

Also, the Pensacola management needs to brush up their customer service.

mga sir may naka akyat na ba dito ng mt. tapulao? totoo ba di na kailangan ng guide? malawak daw yung trail na puro lakaran lang? papuntang summit lang daw may papasukan na gubat :) ?

Bakun Trilogy HD video 10.11-14.2012

Mt. Lubo (2000 MASL+) the highest mountain in Bakun Poblacion.
(http://i203.photobucket.com/albums/aa135/sonnygonz/177059_3708171543219_1699975745_o_zpsbf608290.jpg)

Mt. Tenglawan (1943 MASL) is one of the best places in western Benguet to get a view particularly of the Ilocos coastal lowlands.
(http://i203.photobucket.com/albums/aa135/sonnygonz/134773_3708170463192_1658011431_o_zps4fcb96cd.jpg)

MT. Kabunian / Duligen Rock (1,700 MASL)It would require hands for scrambling around 45 degree steep trails with lots of ridge trekking with both or one side of the trail too steep for comfort. The trail has been established in ancient times by Ifugao traders bartering their local produce to the people on the other side of the mountain. There are trails leading to the bordering province of Ilocos Sur. The mountain has been considered sacred with burial grounds of the Bakun mummies. Also unique to these mountains are the burial jars of Bakun. The view from the top is awesome, giving you a 360 viewpoint of the surrounding environs.
THE MOST BEAUTIFUL OF THE 3.

hehe salamat sir, pero dun kami lagi sa LIGAW dumadaan, pag may induction lang tsaka kami dumadaan sa traditional then traverse. noted yan sir para ma try.
:) para maiba naman, bumubutas lang kami pag makulot ang akyat, imagine mo yung 4hr climb inaabot kami ng 7hrs hahaha dahil lagi nga kami naliligaw, pero masaya naman, lagi lang namin sinasabi na wala namang ibang pupuntahan ang pagakyat ng bundok kundi pataas (sa summit) kaya malakas loob naming bumutas.

PAALALA: ang hanap butas (path finding) po ay hindi para sa lahat, delikado po ito at maaaring makapinsala. doble ingat po sa mga umaakyat at gusto i try ang hanap butas. (highly discouraged po ito)

Nung hindi pa yun butas,1st time ko umakyat ng Maculot nag left turn kami instead of right turn ng anak kong 9year old..adventurer din e,hindi ko pa talaga alam ang trail dun..at yung arrow sa fork area ay nakaturo sa left side kaya nag left side kami which is ligaw pala. narating namin yung end trail nun which is kita yung wall ng rockies kaso we could not get through kasi wala na nga trail hehe..
puro kawayan na at daming nakaharang sanga.kami lang mag ama ang umakyat ng araw na yun sa maculot kasi monday..pakiramdam ko parang may nagbabantay samin at pinag lalaruan kami kasi 2 times ako nahulugan ng gamit (Cellphone at Digicam)..at parang nililigaw kami ..
at ayun sinuyod namin yung buong trail na yun hanggang sa makita namin ang item..pagod na pagod kami nun haha..ang we still succesfully reach rockies pa din..hehe.

At naisip ko na may nag trip sa arrow sign sa fork area na itinuro sa left ang arrow instead of right turn point!tsk..pero thank God nakauwi kami ng safe ng anak ko.  :wave:

twice ko palang naakayat yan sir hehe, limatik infested nga yan. ang instruction pa samin sa baba, e magbihis na sa may batis bago umabot sa may kubo dahil kawawa daw mga kabayo pag inabot ng limatik na sumama sa gamit/damit ng mga mountaineers. pagpag ang term nila e. ganda nga sa taas nyan sir 360 deg view. liit nga lang campsite, dahil summit na mismo.

pamasahe, medicine, batteries, butane, food, trail food, H20,  (alak kung umiinom kayo sa taas)
yan lang ang paulit ulit mong gastusin.
kami sir tradition na sa grupo na CARBO CHARGED dapat the night before the climb, so 2 spagetti meal sa jalibi per head.
sa pamasahe sir depende sa layo at mode of transportation.
 kung susumahin e magastos din hehehehe.

pero kung dayhike lang at nakatira ka sa malapit sa bundok, ok na picnic pack tsaka tubig lang hehehe

127 hours nakita ko lang yan sa CNN hehehe, canyoneering ang tawag nila sir e, pareho lang siguro sa mountaineering CANYON nga lang ineexplore nila instead na mountains and hills.
di ko lang sure sa movie kung may backpacking na involved.
hiking naman sir e term lang  naman yun, outdoor walk or pasyal sa mga terrains/mountains hehehe, ganun din ang trekking term lang din, to journey on foot (adventurous journey) pero hiking naman lahat yan IMHO.

a ok, sikat nga yang mesilau trail lalo na sa mga tourist, kasi may mga tour packages  yan, pero longer than timpuhon.
yung timpuhon naman traditional trail pero mas maiksi sa mesilau, then ang baba e via ferrata. mas strenuous ang trail.
di pako naka summit ng kinabalu dahil first attempt na nakasama ko manipis ang hangin so di kami pinayagan umakyat not unless willing to carry an oxygen tank.
dalawa lang sa team naka akyat  :-(

pag ok ang weather at hindi high pressure, oks na yang climb nyo! may hostel naman sa jumpsite, dun kayo tutulog. then start trek mga 3am for summit+sunrise.

Mga Sirs,

I'm not into mountaineering, pero I heard the news about a co-mountaineer of you guys who's been missing for weeks at Mt. Maculot? Tama ba? Anyway, eto na yung update. Ingat na lang mga Phimusicians sa mga climbs nyo.

 

Human body found on Mt. Maculot in Batangas, report says
April 13, 2013 5:01pm
 
The body of a man was found on Mt. Maculot in Cuenca town in Batangas on Saturday, two weeks after a mountaineer was reported missing since Easter Sunday, a television report said.

GMA's "Flash Report" said the body was found by residents on Mt. Maculot in Cuenca town.

Prior to this, mountaineer Victor Joel Ayson has been msising since he climbed Mt. Maculot alone on March 31, Easter Sunday. He was last seen that day buying a bottle of mineral water at a store on top of the mountain, earlier reports said.

No details about the body have been revealed, however, and Ayson's relatives also declined to comment for now on the development, Saturday's "Flash Report" said.
 
In a separate story on GMA's "24 Oras", reporter Jay Sabale said that the body was found in the lower portion of Mt. Maculot's "Rockies", described as a dangerous part of the mountain.

GMA News Online tried to contact Sr. Inspector Joel Ilagan, officer-in-charge of Cuenca town police, to confirm if the body found was indeed Ayson's. But as of this posting, Ilagan was not able to provide information on the matter, stating that he was on his way to Mt. Maculot to check on developments.
 
The report also quoted Sr. Insp. Ilagan as saying that Ayson's family had already been notified about the discovery. The Ayson family is now en route to Mt. Maculot to identify the body. — Gian C.

Update :

Body found in Cuenca, Batangas confirmed that of missing mountaineer Ayson—NDRRMC, PNP
April 15, 2013 9:09am


  A body found at the cliff of a mountain in Batangas province has been confirmed to be that of missing mountaineer Victor Joel Ayson, the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council said Monday.
In an 8 p.m. Sunday report posted on its website Monday, the NDRRMC said Ayson's father confirmed the body was that of the missing mountaineer.
 
"Three brothers of Ayson and a mountaineer and civilian volunteers who discovered the body) informed the father of the victim to verify the body through MMS and it was confirmed by the father," it said.

In a report on GMA News TV's News to Go on Monday, however, Oscar Oida reported that the Ayson family does not want to confirm if the body was indeed that of Victor Joel's. The body is badly decomposed.
A report on GMA News TV's Balitanghali said the Philippine National Police (PNP) Crime Lab has also confirmed that the body was that of the missing mountaineer.

"Ang cause of death ay blood traumatic injuries of the body, consistent with fall from height," said Chief Inspector Joseph Palmero of the PNP Crime Laboratory-Medico Legal Division.

"We believe it is an accidental fall. Wala pong indikasyon na sinaktan siya," he added.
 According to the report, the PNP ruled out foul play in the incident.

Police assistance
 
Last April 1, Ayson's father Samuel had sought assistance from police in Cuenca town in Batangas to find Victor Joel, who had been missing since Easter Sunday, March 31.
Victor Joel had gone alone to the camp site in Mt. Maculot in Cuenca at the time.

On Saturday, after a two-week search, the body of a man believed to be Ayson was found near the shore of Taal Lake, just below a prominent cliff on Mt. Maculot called the Rockies, well-known to climbers and a visible feature of the mountain from many angles. The body was found on Ayson's 27th birthday.
 
A separate report by radio dzBB's Glen Juego said the body of Victor Joel would be brought to Philippine National Police headquarters in Camp Crame for autopsy.

Cremation

Meanwhile, a close friend of the Ayson family confirms that the body found was indeed that of Victor Joel's.
"The dental record matches with the body," Patrick Angeles, fellow mountaineer and a close friend of the family, told GMA News Online Monday afternoon.

He said the body will be cremated as soon as possible.
Details regarding the wake have yet to be decided by the family, Angeles added.— with  reports from Carmela G. Lapeña and Amanda Fernandez/KG/RSJ/KBK, GMA News

ok lang naman umakyat mag-isa lalo na sa mga familiar na ang trail, isa na maculot dun.
pero sa mga level III climb ( strenuous) - mas OK kung may buddy ka to climb with.

umaakyat ako dati mag isa sa maculot, pero summit assault lang.
ang di ko aakyatin mag isa e ang
cristobal (dahil andaming kakatakot na pangyayari hehehe)

pulag summiteer here!!!

1998 and 2004  :-D

may myth dun na wala pang grupong umakyat dun na di nag aaway  :-D ( sa experience ko totoo nga!)

ambangeg - akiki trail for the win

though pwede namang ambangeg - ambangeg akyat baba

yung akiki trail a.k.a killer trail e di ganun kadali, traverse na yan pa sagada....  sa akiki trail din kami nung nag benguet crossing kami 7 days, baba namin sa viscaya na.


baguio lagi baba naming, then rent kami jeep papuntang ranger station
pagdating sa ranger station, mag reregister, then konting lecture, then magpoprovide na ng 2 guides para sa inyo.

2 guides kasi, minsan yung ibang miyembro ayaw nang mag akiki trail, pag nag split ang grupo tigisa kayo ng guide.

musta pala kinabalu climb nyo?

sa 26 pa punta namen sa Kota, then akyat ng 29. Tsaka na ko kwento, matagal na rin akong di naakyat, pero gusto ko mag Pulag maybe end of yr or next year.

3K+ din ang Pulag kaya di rin madali.

bakit kaya nag aaway? maybe sa sobrang stress  :lol:

bakit kaya nag aaway? maybe sa sobrang stress  :lol:

well sa experience ko sa group namin malamang stress nga.

hahaha pag nasa camp na, depende sa program, minsan kasi dun na rin induction ng new members e.
mag rereport ang sweeper kung ano nangyari sa trail, bakit na delay ang climb, etc.
ayan na basagan na ng ego. si leadman naman sobrang bilis umakyat (pasikat) naiwan na mga applicant, kaya nasa shoulder lahat ng sweeper ang responsibility.
then pag akyat di pa nakakapitch ng tent at nakakaluto mga nauna, kaya ayun. AWAY.
sa pulag lang naman yun nangyari, lahat ng naakayt kong bundok masaya lahat, walang away.


1998 - nag split ang mag totropa sa grupo kasi di lahat trip mag killer trail,
so kami traverse kami pa akiki, yung magkakatropa bumalik sa ambangeg trail.

2004 - ready na lahat mag akiki trail, pero may isa kaming miyembro na sinama yung GF nya sa climb
e sa ambangeg palang mamatay matay na sya sa hirap, edi lalo na sa akiki trail. so ayun after ng 2 bottles na jack daniels, kagulo na kami sa camp site.
ayun split ulit ang grupo into 2 hiwalay ang baba, killer trail ulit kami sila ambangeg ulit.

naranasan ko na sa pulag ang   -2 degcentigrade, as in pag gising mo, pag pinagpag mo ang tent mo may flakes ng yelo, pero pagsapit ng 5am balik sa 8deg centigrade.
kaya lagging may alcohol na inumin pag inaakyat namin yun.... pero sa pagod madaling malasing  :)

isa pa palang reason bakit may away dahil may MAARTE -
may guest climber kami, member ng MOZART (mountain search and rescue team)... syempre aminado naman kami na MAS maganda equipment nya at well trained siya.
 pero di naman ibig sabihin e mag coconcede ang lead man naming sa mga instructions nya, ayun sa ranger camp palang friction na.
may isa pa din guest climber from the ayala mountaineer, e okay naman sya sa climb, pero nung induction of new members na, TAMA ba naming I compare ang
ceremony nila sa ceremony naming  :-D

basta sa pulag lahat nangyari to, considering na di naman ito kahirapan akyatin (mahirap ang pababa sa akiki)
Title: Re: Mountaineering, Climbing, Camping, Trekking Thread
Post by: gainsucker on April 18, 2013, 04:02:35 PM
haha. ganun talaga, di lang sa pag akyat, sa kahit anong trips, may isa or dalawang mga paimportante, maarte, at all knowing, oh well, kasama na yun sa experience, KJ kumbaga

i'll try to document the climb to MT KK, 4k meters to, and my colleague who climbed in Nepal said mas mahirap pa to kesa sa Nepal climb, though im convincing them to try Mt. Pulag

based on the briefing, akyat ng morning then mga 10pm dating ng rest house sa gitna, akyat ulit ng 2:30 am at reach the summit ng 5 or 6 am. then diretso baba will take 12 to 16 hours depende na lang kung mabilis.

May kasama kameng babae, ang yung isa may tama ang isang tuhod. Sometimes mas ok na mabagal ang climb para di pwersado, wala namang competition  :lol:

May mga iilan lang talaga na pasikat kuno.... sabayan nila mga locals ng Mt. KK gaya ni manong na everyday umaakyat baba, tignan ko lang  :lol:

may kakilala kayo nagpapa BMC mga sir? thanks!

meron sir, sa Makati stocks last year, di ko alam kung the ayala mountaineering yun, pero I can give you the contacts.

though di ako against sa BMC, di din ako bilib hehehe, experience parin talaga magtuturo sayo.

ang ginagawa namin sa group namin, instead na BMC, I aakyat namin sa bundok mga applicante,

halimbawa may 5 applicants, bigyan namin sila ng checklist ng gamit, then isasama namin sila sa mga sunday runs namin before the climb. (pero 2 weeks before the climb, bawal na tumakbo, para naka condition ka na)

then lagi kami nag iinvite ng guest climber from other groups para collective learning narin.

nag BMC ako dati, kasama ko taga SINAG ARAW, at SILANGAN, pero kami kami lang din nag kwentuhan.

one more thing, sa mga level 3 climb maririnig mo rin sa mga ranger stations ang sasabihin sa BMC.

You can read up about my Mt. Pulag (Ambangueg-Ambangueg) experience here in my blog post, mura lang package namin andun na din yung link ng details:

hardcore yung akiki madam michiko, alam kong ma eenjoy nyo yun,
try nyo din mt.napulawan, dito nga lang ang na injure, then walang view kasi thick forest, pero sa summit tanaw mo na pulag dun, maliit lang din camp site.
may trail din dun from hapao summit papuntang pulag, so pag nagbago trip nyong umakyat ng napulawan, pwedeng mag pulag bound na kayo.

mt.sicapao di ko pa naaakyat

si gainsucker malamang nakababa na ng KK.


sa mga nakaakyat na ng balagbag, tanong : na drain din ba mga mobile phone batteries nyo? as in lahat kayo sa grupo?
di ko alam kung kami lang yun, pero una at pangalawang akyat namin sa balagbag, laging batt empty kami, kahit fully charged sa baba then papatayin
pag nasa helipad na (campsite) e pagkabukas 1 bar nalang or ayaw na mag ON. weird!

usually naman di mo makikita ang limatik kasi sinlaki lang sya ng butil ng palay pag di pa busog,
makikita mo nalang na may nakasabit sa hita ng kasama mo na sinlaki ng pinky finger pag busog na  :lol:, though painless naman.
kaya nila pumasok sa sapatos, at sa tights, di mo mararamdaman.

That's what happened to me in Mt. Romelo. 2 of those evil creepers went up my thigh. Nung magbabanlaw na kami sa falls, they were there sucking my royal blood haha! Gusto ko nalang malunod sa takot! Never again. Gives me the chills until now. Naka-leggings pa ko nun and leg compression sleeves. Di ko sila naramdaman at all and that's what scares me the most.

speaking of NAGBABANLAW

guys pag nasa bundok, batis, balon, lake or kahit na nasa swimming pool

wag IIHI (pee),

because bacteria/parasites get inside your body if you urinate in a natural body of water, of course hindi during hehehe but after kasi relaxed and open pa ang system natin.

tsaka kadiri kaya! hahaha,
 im not saying na ginagawa nyo, pero since madalas tayo sa bundok, at naliligo tayo sa mga BATISAN e maganda nang mag ingat diba, may natural defence ang kagubatan kasama na dyan ang bacteria.

Iwasan po magsuot ng kahit anumang camouflage military uniform sa bundok, baka mapagkamalan po tayo. And isa sa aim natin sa pananamit sa bundok eh yung visible, yung litaw na litaw, kung maaksidente man po tayo ng naka camouflage mahirap po tayo hanapin dahil naka camo na tayo sa surroundings.

hehe actually subjective parin ang grading ng difficulty sa mga bundok natin depende sa gumawa ng grade hehehe.

1997 sir nagsimula nako umakyat hehehe,  so ang basis ng grading na alam ko e yung level I to V  determinants dun e yung slope
 level VI e yun yung mga cantilever or rock canopies na , di ko pa na experience hehehe.



(http://i228.photobucket.com/albums/ee308/fretmarks_otep/ECHELL1_zpsad7bf6dd.jpg) (http://s228.photobucket.com/user/fretmarks_otep/media/ECHELL1_zpsad7bf6dd.jpg.html)

pero nung nakaka salamuha ko na mga batikan sa akyat nabago ulit yun,  Level I-III nalang ... level I fun climb --- level III as strenuous


yun then nakasalamuha ko SILANGAN mountaineer at oikos adventure team, dun fun climb, minor climb and  major climb nalang tawag hehehe  so basically 3 levels parin hehehe.


yung sa pinoy mountaineering tsaka metropolitan mountaineering society magkaiba din sila ng grading

yung sa mosart (mountain search and rescue team)  naman puro difficult climb lang gine grade nila

so ayun,,, SUBJECTIVE parin ang grading hehehe nabanggit ko lang.  :)

may point ka dyan kapatid. although ive been a mountain guide for the past 15 years concentrating in the highlands up north, napansin ko lang sa bandang Cordillera alam nila kung anong klase ng camou patern ang gamit ng AFP so kung iba yung patern ng suot mong camou e madalas di nila pinapansin yun pero di mo parin maiwasan na may magtanong sayong local kung sundalo ka dahil sa suot mong camou

pugay na rin para sayo sir at sa lahat ng mamumundok dito sa PM... baka naman nagkasalubong narin tayo sa isang bundok at naghati ng maiinit na kape o sabaw di lang natin alam

mt kalawitan sir is almost the same as mt pulag
guys sino na naka akyat ng mt. palali at mt. kalawitan? yun sana mga sunod ko na akyatin :)

mt kalawitan is almost the same as mt Pulag sir  :-D the trail, mossy forest and all mas mataas lang ang pulag. this mountain is in sabangan so your best route if your commuting is to go through baguio first get your supplies there then catch the first bus to sabangan (5:00 AM). they say that mt pulag is the playground of the gods while mt kalawitan is the home of the gods. it truly is a beautiful mountain

galing lang ako dun 2 weeks ago kakaiba ang ulan ngayon dun sir so be sure to bring with you extra warm clothes and bring a tarp to go over your tent para extra waterpfroofing na din and gives you space to cook kung maliit ang vestibule ng tent mo dala ka na din ng malaking vegetable bag (not the black trash bag) its bigger and when you spread it open it can serve as a secondary floor for your tent (moisture from the wet ground can still seep through your tent floor even if the manufacturer says its waterproof  :)

mt palali is in vizcaya pwede day hike yun kasi 4 to 5 hrs walk lang nasa summit ka na pero ganon parin since nasa cordillera mountain range sya expect heavy rains. pwede kayo tumuloy dito from mt kalawitan

nice share po sir..this is what i do if benguet climb area kami..iba kasi ang climate + moisture lalo na sa gabi.malaking bagay ang naka tarp ang tent mo (Flooring and top) or pwede din gawin stand ang mga trekking poles from the group members para gawin group vestibule so, may galawan sa camp area lalo pag naulan.

mag isa lang ako sir nag climb.

pwede matulog sa apa sir  :) may mga huts dun kung ayaw mo mag tent at pwedeng pwede magpaluto sa mga guide. kung galing ka ng manila maghanda ka lang ng 3K for fare, DENR fee (green fee ang tawag nila dun) and guide fee kasma na din dun sa 3K ang food provision at souvenir kung pipiliin nyong mamili dun.

 mas magaan ang guide fee pag madami kayo ang guide by the way is 1 is to 7 nasa 300 to 500 ang guide per day.

sa 3K nga pala sir pamasahe na yun balikan from manila to baguio to sabangan and vice versa.

kanino naman madalas sumabay team leader nyo? sa lead man or sa sweeper?

sa experience ko sa oikos adventure team, laging sa sweeper sumasabay ang team leader, dahil concern nya madalas mga applicant and their safety though tuloy tuloy ang radio com nya sa lead man
para sa decision making regarding trails and kung audible pa ang whistle.

sa Silangan naman, yung team leader e sabay lagi sa lead man hehehe, lalo na kung hanap butas ang trail, at madaming ligaw.

kung madami kayo dala fire starter pwede na yun para sa tubig na mainit

solo nyo campsite,

ginawa na namin yun maraming beses na, nung huling akyat namin na may monsoon andun na HALHALIN mountaneers hehe naunahan kami sa good spot pero in-assist naman nila kami

dala na kayo fried daing na bangus (di napapanis)

then punuin nyo ng salted egg and fresh tomato yung 2ft na paper tube. para madaling isaksak sa backpack, (well depende kung ilan kayo sa team)

para rice and spaghetti nalang lulutuin nyo sa taas  :-D

Relayed from Bryan Ronquillo, from Doki Natividad about the missing hikers in Tarak:

 1. We were able to talk to sir TEDES.. the Brgy. Chief investigator ng Brgy. Alas-Asin Mariveles Bataan.. (mt. Tarak ridge Jump off registration point).. the ff info came from him.

 2. 9Subjects (7male, 2 female) climbed last saturday. Sunday ng gabi ay nagtext na ng distress sa barangay thru friend ng mountaineers. "Andito Kami halos sa tuktok ng pang apat na bundok mula sa mt.tarak. pang apat na ilog po."
 this text was sent 7:59am today.

 3. Yesterday ay nag deploy na ng sar team ang brgy headed by brgy capt along with military and pnp but umuwi rin sa CP nung ginabi na.

 4. Today, nagdeploy ulit ng team ang brgy with PNP and military.. but as of their 9am update nasa "Ariong" palang sina kap, ZERO Visibility na.

 5. The mountaineers daw ay baka nawala during the descent at posible na dumaan sa "PANIKIAN".. detour un na papunta sa falls.

 6. The subjetc are headed by a certain Michael Reyes(TL nila).. the team's composition is frm cavite, laguna, makati.

Organizing a Climb (dahonpalaymountaineers)

 INTRODUCTION

 Mountaineering is one sport that one can enjoy either with a team, a group of friends, with a partner or even by his lonesome. It is good to experience each one of them once in a while but before one should venture out into the wilderness on his own, it is advised that he first join an organized climb and learn the basic mountaineering skills for his safety and enjoyment. It is advisable for an individual to join some mountaineering group where he could learn and experience the basics extensively through the courses they offer. Just be sure that the organization one will join offers such services.

 This chapter deals with the details of organizing a climb. Although most mountaineers love the idea of freedom and spontaneity than rules and organization, these structures were meant for the climber’s safety and the protection of the environment at the same time thus it’s importance never undermined.

 The organizer should have mastered the basic skills at the minimum and have a good record of experiences before he leads a group. This is due to the fact that still, mountaineering has dangerous aspects.

 PLANNING A CLIMB

 In planning a climb here are points to consider:
•Decide where to go.
•Choose your companion or target participants.
•Collect route information and other useful information on the destination considered. It is advisable to contact any LGUs or local mountaineering group to get current information on the status of the trails, costs, permits, etc.
•Assess the physical fitness of the group.
•Arrange for food and equipment distribution.
•Check weather forecast.
•Acquire permits in advance if necessary.
•Assign climb officials.
•Conduct pre-climb meeting or briefings.

 CLIMB COMPOSITION

 Although there are no rules on the number of person to join an expedition, three is the suggested least number of people in an expedition. This is because if an emergency occurs, one can accompany the victim while the other goes out for help considering the injured is only one of the participants; or even two if one has only minor injuries. With regards with the number of maximum participants, these should depend on the carrying capacity of the place although no such studies still exist in the Philippines as of this date. Too many climbers make the team slow and stressful to the environment. Eight is the ideal number based on the principles of a military squad.

 As a practice here in the Philippines, here is a list of basic climb officials and their duties and responsibilities.
•Team Leader
•Lead man (trailblazer, lead packer)
•Sweeper (tail ender)
•First- aiders

 TEAM LEADER
 1.The team leader is the final authority during the climb, and all participants are expected to support and comply with his decisions. Any negative evaluation of his conduct of the climb should be brought out during the post-climb meeting. However, the team leader is expected to consult with the participants before making major decisions that affect the itinerary or conduct of the climb.
 2.He is expected to exercise good judgement and to consider safety, comfort and fun.
 3.The team leader assigned for any climb preferably must have had prior climb experience on the same route unless it is an expedition climb, or when a local guide is available. In any event general familiarity with the route is required.
 4.Duties of the team leader :

 Preparatory activities
•Consult those who are familiar with the terrain and locality particularly the security situation, trail conditions, campsite limitations and travel restrictions.
•Conduct a survey of the route when possible or when advisable.
•Prepare the climb itinerary.
•Conduct physical diagnostics.

 Pre-climb
•Objective of the climb based on its nature (initiation, fun, training, induction or expedition)
•General information, historical significance, folklore, etc. of the location of the climb.
•Itinerary and highlights of the climb.
•Route condition and trail hazards.
•Water sources and its condition.
•Main and alternative campsites.
•General weather conditions.
•Local weather conditions or peculiarities.
•Cultural peculiarities of the locale (beliefs, taboos, etc.)
•Contact persons in the locality and residence.
•Special medical precautions on malaria, typhoid, dengue, etc.
•Purchase opportunities in the locale.
•Special equipment checklist and assignments (for overall group equipment such as ropes, harness, etc.)
•Transportation arrangements.
•Budget.
•Review of ethics, policies and Basic Mountaineering Course when necessary.
•Assignments of groupings and climb officers. (it is important to remind all the participants of the functions, responsibilities and authorities of these key climb officers)
•Review of the itinerary. (It is best to distribute copies of the itinerary to all participants. If copies are unavailable, remind them to copy the itinerary as presented)

 Pre-departure
•In case of any pre-departure change in itinerary or plans, the team leader shall immediately notify all participants. At the pre-departure assembly point, the team leader shall ensure that all present have actually complied with all mandatory requirements that apply to them and shall require compliance with those that are not yet complied with.
•The team leader must prepare a list of participants before departure. It shall be the basis for periodic head counts and allocation of common expenses. If possible, a copy of the list should be left with a contact person at the point of departure in the event that a rescue becomes necessary.

 Climb Proper
•Before the start of the trek and at every major rest stop. Check the head count and general physical conditions of all participants.
•As needed, consult with the other climb officers or participants any need to modify the itinerary due to weather, injury, unforeseen trail hazards, etc. After consultation, make the decision and notify all the participants.
•Control the overall pacing of the climb so as not to unduly delay the trek without sacrificing safety of any participant.
•Check that proper trail signs are installed at critical places like forks and trail splits.
•At the campsite, ensure that camp protocol and proper practices are observed as well as compliance with organization ethics, rules and regulations.
•Observe the conduct and comfort of participants.
•Observe and monitor performance of climb officers.
•Ensure that the campsite is left clean before taking off.
•Establish/maintain contact with local community leaders and dwellers along the trail but more particularly at or near campsites.

 Emergency Situation
•In case of any situation requiring extreme deviation from the climb schedule, the team leader shall, in so far as practicable, consult with the participants. In any event, the team leader must make the final decision taking overall and individual safety into consideration.
•In case of incapacitating injury to any member of the party, the team leader must call-off the climb. Steps must be taken to protect and care for the victim/s. If a provisional camp is established to stabilize the victim, a team of at least 2 experienced climbers must be sent ahead to alert the base camp and contact rescue authorities as well as the contact person of the victim. The team leader may allow other members of the party to proceed down while ensuring that experienced and strong climbers are left to attend to the injured member/s until a rescue party reaches them. At all times, the team leader must maintain composure and keep all members calm but alert.
•In case of prolonged lack of contact with tail-enders, the team leader must make the decision on whether or not to send a search party to backtrack and assist the tail- enders as needed. In this case, strong and experienced climbers must be sent while the main body set up a temporary holding camp as needed. The leadsman should be notified to either hold their position or rejoin the main body.

 Post Climb Briefing
•As soon as possible, preferably within a week after the completion of the climb, the team leader shall take up the following:
 1.Review and assessment of the climb: general conduct, trail, pointers for subsequent climbs, etc.
 2.Comments, admonitions, congratulations regarding conduct of individual participants.

 LEADMAN
•As much as possible, the assigned leadman should not be team leaders themselves. Exceptions can be made in cases of small groups (12 or less) which are not likely to get separated, climb of short duration, or absence of qualified members.
•He must have prior experience on the particular trail unless accompanied by local guides.
•He should be selected among the stronger, healthier, experienced and patient members of the party. For a large climbing party or a long duration climb, more than one should be assigned.
•He has the duty to put in place the proper trail markers for the guidance of the following groups. When in doubt, or when the possibility of doubt exists, the trail must be marked in such a manner that no confusion could arise in its interpretation.
•He must stop and wait for re-assembly at designated major rest stops, and they must remain within whistle-hearing distance of the next group at all times.
•He should not deviate from the planned route without waiting for the team leader’s decision.
•He shall implement the pacing as instructed by the Team Leader.

 SWEEPERS
•As much as possible, the assigned sweepers should not be team leaders themselves. Exceptions may be made in cases of small parties , (12 or less) which are not likely to get separated; climbs of short duration; or absence of qualified members.
•They must have prior experience on the particular trail unless accompanied by a local guide.
•They must be self-contained as completely as practicable.
•The sweepers must be selected from among the stronger, healthier, experienced and patient members of the party. For a large climbing party or a long duration climb, more than two must be assigned.
•The sweeper must remain at the tail-end of the climbing party at all times.He must be ready to assist lagging climber/s who may need assistance, and must maintain the pace, and control the rest stops of the lagging participants, taking into consideration their physical situations, safety needs, and the climb schedule.
•In case of incapacitating injury or illness, or danger brought about by unexpected weather, darkness or natural occurrence, the sweeper may decide to set-up a temporary camp at his direction. Other members of the group, who are capable of going on, must be sent ahead to notify the team leader of the actions taken, so that the latter may make the necessary decisions. Again, safety is first considered.
•One of the sweepers must be assigned to remove trail markers put up by the lead group.

 FIRST AIDER
•Expedition first-aiders should preferably be chosen from among those who had proper training under the auspices of the Philippine National Red Cross, or had professional medical training. In this connection, the organization shall endeavor to maintain a pool of trained members.
•At least one should be assigned per climb. For large parties, more than one should be designated. If more than one is assigned they should be distributed over more than one team.
•In the event of an injury, the first aider shall have the responsibility for applying the necessary aid, prescribing medication, and recommending corrective action or assistance. If necessary to deviate from the itinerary, he shall make his recommendation known to the team leader for the lather’s decision. In the presence of a designated first-aider, no other member shall intervene with the treatment of a victim unless he/she is requested by the first aider to assist.

sir itutuloy namin sa january 31 to feb 2 yung naunsyami naming mt. ugo hike.  meron pa din kayang victory liner Tuguegarao sa taft? nakita ko kasi sa website nila yung address, mas malapit kasi samin to kumpara sa east avenue terminal ng victory liner.

just got back from Pulag weekend climb..

weather was perfect!

for those wanting to climb though, many sections of road from pangasinan to Baguio is under construction.. if you'll be bringing private vehicle, i strongly suggest you take:

NLEX-SCTEX-Cabanatuan-N. Ecija-N.Vizcaya-Ariato-Kayapa-Bokod route para makaiwas sa traffic during the day time...

happy climbing!

Entry to Mt. Banahaw may be restricted indefinitely

Stiffer restrictions on Mount Banahaw’s protected landscape remain and may be extended indefinitely, Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Regional Executive Director Reynulfo Juan said on Thursday

With 50 hectares of grasslands leveled to the ground, Juan supported recommendations by Protected Area Superintendent Salud Pangan and the investigation team to hold trekkers illegally entering the protected area to determine culpability and file necessary charges.

Sa brgy hall ng Bakun kami nag-stay natutulog at nagluluto, ang kapitan dun nag cater samin. 100/person/day. Apat lang kami nung ginawa namin ang Bakun Trio medyo malaki nagastos namin umabot sa 4,500 ang sakin kasama na pasalubong. At that time may mga sirang kalsada papuntang Bakun town proper kaya matagal talaga biyahe namin and we have to walk on some areas..i ,remember sinundo pa kami ng Kapitan naka van papunta sa jump-off ng Mt.Lobo mga 11am na kami naka start trek nag hanap pa ng guide kasi ,500 mt.lobo guide fee,iniwan na namin ang mga gamit namin sa van at dadalhin na lang ni Kapitan sa Poblacion Bakun Central para magaan lang dala namin, Lobo traversre ginawa namin sa Poblacion Bakun Central kami lumabas.The next day Mt.Tenglawan naman 5am kami nag start,ibang guide naman 1000/guide fee mga 830pm na kami nakabalik sa central dahil sa daming photo ops..hahaha.profesional photographer kasi kasama ko that time!pang 3rd ang Mt.Kabunian,6am start trek diferent guide 700/guide fee. pinanghuli talaga namin ang Kabunian kasi ito daw ang highlight ng whole Bakun Trio Climb at pinaka scenic ang view..which is realy true.sobrang ganda ni Kabuian blessed kami ng good weather throughout the whole 3days trek although may padating na bagyo nun sa Manila bago kami umalis papunta baguio.so,we realy pray na maganda ang weather sa Bakun kasi sayang ang oras at pera pag maulan ang climbs namin.

FYI


lahat ng ambangeg trail trekker di na pwede mag camp sa camp site, bale sa rangers camp lang pwede mat pitch ng temporary shelter. (pulag) then summit assault nalang kinabukasan.

pero kung traverse sa akiki trail, papayagan kayong mag assault sa kabila pero di parin pwede mag stay sa camp site (for rehab purposes)

sa pico de loro naman, sinarado na ng may ari yung traditional trail, so lahat ng climber sa DENR trail lang makakadaan.

Restrictions set on climb to Mt. Pulag

LA TRINIDAD, Benguet—Camping on Luzon’s highest peak is no longer allowed during weekends, one of the new rules imposed by the overseers of the Mt. Pulag National Park to assure its protection without disrupting the business provided by mountain trekkers to the Ibaloy and Kalanguya communities in the area.
Emelita Albas, Mt. Pulag park administrator, said her office has started to turn back tourists and have prohibited camping in one of the country’s last mossy forests from Friday to Sunday.
“We need to limit visitors inside the park for conservation purposes. We turned back a hundred tourists on Feb. 8 [because the park was full],” Albas said at a news conference on Thursday.

Mt. Guiting-Guiting National Park to set new fees for 2017

Mr. Andy Regla of the Mt. Guiting-Guiting National Park (MGGNP) office of the DENR has informed us of changes in the fee schedule of the park effective 1 January 2017.

He forwarded to us the entire document and I am sharing the relevant portions as screenshots below. Basically, the guiding fee has increased from 2400 to 3000 pesos regardless of trip duration (whether 1, 2, or 3 days) with a ratio of 1:3 if doing a traverse, and 1:5 if doing a regular hike from Tampayan.

The entrance/registration fee remains unchanged at P300 per person for Filipinos and P500 for foreigners. See more below:

Sagada caves closed following boy’s death

BAGUIO CITY, Philippines -- Mountain Province tourism haven Sagada has closed its caves following the death of a boy in a fall and said the popular destinations would remain off limits to tourists until town elders decide otherwise.

Sagada tourism officer Robert Pangod Pangod said only Balangagan cave remains open to tourists. Sumaguing, Lumiang and Crystal caves are closed.

Pangod said the decision to close the caves was made after Rael Aglolo Gambican, 15, of Barangay Ambasing and a Grade 8 student at Balugan National High School, died after a fall inside Crystal cave as he played Monday afternoon.

Missing for 11 days, Korean trekker survives by drinking own urine

A Korean traveler bound for Banaue who went missing earlier this month was found alive on Tuesday.
Choi Sungkyu checked out from an inn at Barlig, Mt. Province last June 9 and had not been seen until today.
Police last communicated with Choi on June 13.
Choi was found at around 10:40 a.m., Tuesday in a part of a mountain in Barangay Latang, Barlig.

"May hunter na local dun na kasama sa search and rescue team na nakakita sa kanya. Mahina na siya. Hindi alam mag-English nung local, pero nakuha pa rin niya i-convince na sumama sa kanya papunta sa rice fields,” Police Chief Inspector Carolina Lacuata said.

Choi was able to survive 11 days in the mountain without enough food and water.
He told the rescuers that the only food he had was a bag of peanuts which he thriftily ate when he realized he was lost.
After he finished the peanuts, he chewed his paper bills, believing that these contain salt which could help him survive.
He drank spring water, but there were moments when he could not find a source, and being desperately thirsty, he drank his own urine.
