Mt. Pamitinan (Rodriguez, Rizal)

Pamitinan is one of the mountains in Rodriguez, Rizal, which according to PinoyMountaineer it is about 426 MASL. This is the mountain that we are going to climb today. I met Tolits at Jollibee Cubao and we left there at five forty five in the morning after we load up.

Then again, we meet Jeff, Rocky, and Majimen (Jeff’s friend) and we arrived at Brgy. Wawa to meet Emman, the guide.

The trek officially started at seven o’clock in the morning. According to our guide, it takes one to two hours to reach the peak. The trail here is established and the first part of the trail is forested. There is part that requires rock climbing or bouldering that you will definitely enjoy. And, challenging for the beginners, but it is manageable. Just concentrate and take extra careful as the rock is a bit sharp here.

From the summit, one can see Mount Haponang Banoy and in distance is Mount Arayat, the Sierra Madre mountains is also visible here, and a growing towns of Rizal. We’re descended after that and arrived at around ten o’clock. 

This is my 20th official conquered mountains. And, the unforgettable one because it’s my birthday climb, too!
