  1. Maman has this to say regarding the top of Patah…

    “I now working in Bali as a canyoning guide. Last time I climb, I need two days trekking to the peak, I arrived at the peak at third day morning and one full day to get back. The view in the top is beautiful, the trees like in fairy tale. but if you expect an open wide view with the clouds below, you will be dissapointed by this mount, because the view is only sub-alpine forest of Vaccinium(cantigi) about ten meters high.”

  2. A friend who climbed Dempo recently met a local chap called Ottaman Detwo (also known as Maman) from Pagaralam. It turns out that Maman recently made a pioneering ascent of Patah (involving opening up a trail to the top) in September 2010. It took 6 days to reach the peak. Now he estimates it could be climbed in 5 days total – 3 up, 2 down. I may well put this on the itinerary for 2012.
