We are still awaiting information on the mountains of Aurora, several of which were showcased in the 29th Federation Climb of the MFPI, sponsored by the UP Mountaineers, in April 2008. Although Cagayan Valley has been blessed with much of the Sierra Madre range, it is still a relatively undiscovered region insofar as mountain climbing is concerned. Hopefully, this is change in the future as more mountains in the Valley are unraveled.

Good Afternoon, fortunate i climbed last April, 2012 the Cagua Volcano in Gonzaga, Cagayan, it a great potential to the mountaineering world to open and explore the mountains within the town of Gonzaga or Cagayan Province.

The coastal side of Sierra Madre is still a bit "unexplored" or "unknown" to mountaineering circles.

I've seen many routes in the country but nothing compares to the remoteness, near-pristine and diverse nature when exploring this part of the country.

If you're in Cagayan province, there are 3 access going to the coastal side.
1. There's a traverse from the town of Baggao to the coast-taking three days. These are Agta trails that takes three full days.

2. My favorite is a boat trip from The northermost-tip, the town of Sta Ana to the Sitio's in the coast. Any mountain peak is accessible via logging trails. However, boat trips are closed during the months from September to January.

3. From PeƱablanca – also a traverse

Hi Dr Gid-Pls include Mt. Island Di'nem on your list of mountains in Batanes. Its 531M.
I hope our adventures in that island mountain is one of a kind you will never forget.
