Hi friends,

The 7 Summits represent the highest point on each of the seven continents.Many of the people that have completed their Seven Summits quest are inexperienced climbers who pay immense amounts of cash to outfitters and climbing guides to drag, cajole, and short-rope them up the difficult peaks like Carstensz pyramid. It is the second largest mountain in the world.It is situated in the western states of Popua. Many travelers have come to here for traveling and climbing the mountain.The climb is on beautiful, sharp limestone. Most of the climb is scrambling, but there are sections up to 5.6 in difficulty. We will fix ropes on much of the route to gain the summit ridge, which will aide us on the descent.The summit ridge is a beautiful, but exposed knife-edge ridge with really interesting climbing.

With regards
Carstensz Pyramid
