Early this year, I started a project called the "The 100 Mountains Project" aiming to summit 100 mountains before the end of this year. I started off the project by hiking the Montalban Trilogy, the Mt. Pamitinan, Mt. Hapunang Banoi, and Mt.Binacayan. That's three mountains already to kick off the project!
