Wyatt Maktrav de los Reyes Bedural is a three-year old baby mountaineer in the Philippines who has already climbed 26 mountains in the country with his parents.
Wyatt was exposed to the great outdoors at a very early age. He has gone up his first climb and camping experience in Pico de Loro with his parents when he was just eight months old.

Aside from being a super young mountaineer, Wyatt is also known to be the youngest to reach the peak of highest mountain in the country at one year and 11 months old while taking the tough Talomo-Apo, also known as the Mindanao mega-traverse. Although other mountaineers bring their kids with them in some hikes, Wyatt is believed to be the one to achieve this feat.

Some of the climbs that Wyatt took with his parents needed several days of trek to complete. In every climb, proper preparation is done to ensure his safety.
Apparently, his first name “Wyatt” means brave and strong while his second name “Maktrav” is a conjugation of “Makiling Traverse,” which is a famous local hiking destination.
