MT. MADJAAS 2002: Climb Itinerary

Mt. Madjaas is the  highest mountain in Panay Island. This mountain name translates to "Mataas" in Tagalog (or tall in English). It is one of three prominent peaks in Antique Range together with Mt. Nangtud, and Mt. Baloi.

I realized that after blogging for quite a while now, I haven't blogged about
