Any chance for Ficus hederacea ?

I did not find distribution for this sp. above 1500m. and I guess leaf pattern looks different.

Acumen of leaves too long for Ficus hederacea, therefore this should be Ficus sarmentosa.

But F. sarmentosa is a shrub whereas this is a climber !

Ficus sarmentosa is a shrub or a woody vine (woody creeper or toot climber).

Thank you … We take it as Ficus sarmentosa Buch.-Ham. ex Sm.
