Mount Guiting-Guiting or G2 is the highest mountain in the province of Romblon, located in Sibuyan Island, in the Philippines, with an elevation of 6,752 ft (2,058 m) above sea level. Its steep slopes and jagged peak, have earned it the reputation, as one of the most difficult and technically most challenging mountain to climb in the Philippines. Ranked 11th-most prominent mountain in Philippines, and 71st-highest peak of an island in the world. Located at the heart of Sibuyan and dominates the landscape for miles around. Guiting-Guiting, in the Romblomanon dialect means "jagged". It is one of the focal points of Sibuyan's declaration as a biodiversity haven and has been dubbed by some local and international natural scientists as The Galapagos of Asia. The island of Sibuyan has been compared numerous times with the biodiversity endemism rate of the Galapagos islands in Ecuador.

This endemism prompted much of the mountain and its slopes to be protected under the Mt. Guiting-Guiting Natural Park, established in 1996. The park also encompasses nearby Mt. Nailog (789 masl) to the west. Wikipedia
