This short note is just to clarify some misconceptions about the blog.
First of all, it is not a mountaineering club or an organization. PinoyMountaineer is a website. This is PinoyMountaineer. Authored by Gideon Lasco, Founded in 2007 with the help of Ivan Henares of Ivan About Town, and Contributed to by mountaineers from all over (including you through your climbs and comments). The objective of this blog as to create a portal for Philippine mountaineers to have hiking information, updated news, and all things related to hiking.
So please don’t refer to a “Pinoy Mountaineer Group” or “PinoyMountaineers” (in the plural). Such are non-existent 😀 PinoyMountaineer also does not pertain to the blogger, but the blog ^^
