Mt. Lobo in 2003
By: Dom Goduco
PALMC recently held its inaugural climb for the year 2003 at Mt. Lobo in Lobo, Batangas. The affair was attended by over 50 participants, inclusive of guests, members, initiates, and our host---the Batangas Backpackers


Palaui Island
By: Dom Goduco
Palaui Island has been said to be where Mt. Banahaw, Batanes and Boracay are put into one place. It lies on the northeastern most tip of Luzon. Its coastline is a combination of rocky cliffs and white-sand beaches full of dry corals. Designated as a marine sanctuary, flora and fauna abound in great variety and strangely the marine life seems to be more eager in welcoming visitors to the island than its human residents.

PALMC EnviroCom Report; EARTH DAY 2002
By: Elmer C. Cabotage – OIC PALMC EnviroCom In celebration of Earth Day 2002, the Philippine Airlines Mountaineering Club conducted a coastal clean-up and survey of Taal Volcano’s South Peak last Saturday, April 20, 2002.

Climbing with Two OMs (Old married men? Old maids? Operations managers?)

There is significance in climbing a relatively unknown trekking destination in Rizal that barely made it as a mountain by cartographers? definition: Susong Dalaga of Talim Island Cardona Rizal 438 M ASL.


Get In to Get Out Tirad Pass

You've heard of many types of climbs. There's a fun climb where the difficulty in trekking is overwritten by the extent of the fun. Some clubs have diagnostics differentiating those with potentials and those who are better off left behind in the malls.


Green view, cool weather, full blue moon, quiet moments Tirad Pass

A mouthful for a title but that's how it was tracking the path of Tirad Pass on the last day of 2001. When the rains have watered the mountains at the 3rd and 4th quarter of the year, the flora shows off its lush greenery at this time of the year giving a refreshing green view.

Green view ... FULL STORY

By Vincent Balagot

The sun shone through the windshield of Dope's Honda CRX. But it didn't wake us up. We slept nary a wink the whole night inside his car--it was too cold, too cramped and too uncomfortable yet the day's beginning filled us with glee seeing how beautiful the weather was. A perfect day to bag a peak. Little did we know it'll turn into glum at the end of the day.

Malayo Man, Malapit Din Guiting Guiting
Ni Rina Tiangco

Umaga?t uulan-ulan, aambon-ambon, papatak-patak. Sa loob ng tent ay hihikab-hikab, nagtaklob, salamat at hindi yata kami tutuloy tuwang daing ng mga lamang nananakit. "Gising at aalis tayong alas otso."

Mt. Kinabalu

Sabah is blessed to host Mt. Kinabalu. That imposing mountain served as a channel to see the best not only in the natural resources, the plant and animal species but in human resources as well.

A Weekend in Nature?s Bosom (Susong Dalaga, Talim Island)
By Bob Tongco

I never imagined I?d be on top of a peak named after a woman?s most noticeable body feature. Definitely not on the third weekend of February, only a few days after Valentine?s. The mountain was Susong Dalaga, the highest point on Talim Island, which is in the middle of Laguna de Bay.
