IMG guide Dan Zokaites reports that the team successfully made it back to Wamena yesterday and are now enjoying a rest day at the hotel. They will have a chance to explore the town a bit and get organized and packed up for their next climb of Puncak Mandala. For tomorrow morning they have a helicopter arranged to fly them to this very remote peak which is much farther to the east, quite near the border with Papua New Guinea. The internet is pretty slow over there, but Dan was able to send some photos they took on the Trikora climb… quite an adventure!
