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
A member of MFPI (Mountaineering Federation of the Philippines, Inc.) invited me to join sa Mid-year Presidential meeting last November 25-27, 2011 sa Mt. Maculot, Cuenca Batangas.
Originally, it was supposed to be a 5-day event at dapat sa Mt. Makiling, Laguna but due to some internal reason nalipat sa Mt. Maculot.
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)
Maculot's Jump Off Point
Ang meeting place namin was sa Jam Terminal sa Buendia-LRT station. For about 2 and a half hours and 140.00 na fare we reached Public Market ng Cuenca. Bumili na muna kami ng ready to eat na food for dinner then we hired a tricyle papuntang jump off point. (Mountaneer's Stop and Store). A registration fee of 10.00 pesos is required.
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.
