If there’s such a thing as ‘Seven Summits of the World’, which our compatriot Romi Garduce is now on his way to completing, is there a ‘Seven Summits of the Philippines’? As in the global list where there’s a problem on how to classify Australia and Oceania (hence the Messner and Bass lists), there’s also a problem on how to classify it in the Philippines. For one, there’s no significant mountain in Samar, so we made it Samar-Leyte. But the first list will leave out some very nice peaks like D2 and Mayon — in this sense, the second list is more inclusive.
Anyway, whichever way you classify it, PinoyMountaineer gets a score of 6/7!
