I am pleased to announce that my quest is continuing and very soon! I will be heading to Carstensz Pyramid March 6th to attempt to climb the highest peak on the Oceania Continent! I will be climbing with Mountain Professionals again as well as two of my friends that I climbed with in Alaska. Carstensz Pyramid stands 16,023ft high and will be the most techincal mountain so far. That doesn't mean it is the most difficult though. There are some sections where basic rock climbing and rappeling skills are needed which makes it more technical. Carstensz is located near the equator so temperature year round is similar but that doesn't mean it can't snow!
Normally a helicopter is taken over the tropical jungle to base camp and back off the mountain but not our trip! We will be flying to base camp but hiking out! This will add several days onto our trip but what an experience. I can't wait to see what this adventure holds! I will be posting from the mountain so please remember to follow along!
