Thanks to Cesar Modina for adding this peak.

Mount Sembrano is located in Barangay, Malaya, Pililia, Rizal it is surrounded on three sides by the Laguna Lake. It is classified as a level 2 moderate climb, the peak can be reached by a day’s hike from the registration area (Barangay hall). The peak is mostly covered in grass devoid of any trees.

The actual mountain itself according to the barangay officials is privately owned by a rich Fil-Chinese businessman (we saw boundary markers (mojon) 300 meters from the summit).

The trail under the forest canopy is made up slippery and sometimes-loose rock, utmost care must be taken. Two major accidents have been recorded one died and the other suffered a dislocated elbow.

Thanks to Cesar Modina for this description.
