Para sa Iyong Kaalaman:
Many Coconut trees are on the area that from a distance you can see the mountain with Curly hair. It is also said that curly-haired aborigines (Aetas) once lived in this mountain, hence it was named Maculot from "kulot", meaning curly. - http://gilas-mountaineers.webs.com
The primary reason why I joined ay para makasama sa Mt. Maculot at madagdag eto sa listahan ng mga bundok na naakyat ko. First time ko sumama sa mga ganitong event kaya excited at kabado kasi wala akong kilala ni isa sa mga taga MFPI at ang naginvite sa akin was a mountaineer by hobby at na met ko sa social network. So technically, hindi kami close. (Peace Sir Erwin)
We started to hike papuntang Voltaire's Camp dahil dito ang venue para sa Mid-year Presidential Meeting ng MFPI. It was just a short walk and during the short walk tatanong na ako ng mga benchmarks for climbing. First time ko din umakyat with someone na mas tenured sa akin in terms of climbing so I grabbed the opportunity to ask as many questions as possible.
