All is well at Carstensz Pyramid! Dan checked in to let us know that all of the mud boots are working correctly and they are strong and ready to roll. “A little snow last night just below 14,000 feet, it looks like,” Dan let me know immediately on the phone. When you go to Carstensz, you are bound to get a little precipitation from day to day. So far, the team has not been let down. A couple afternoon clouds and some precipitation at night but nothing that they don’t expect.
Today, they are on the trail. Pack up and head over New Zealand Pass where their high point of the day will be 14,500 feet as they go through the pass. Dan is hoping the snow sticks around, it might make travel a little better. After crossing over the pass, the Team will drop down and head to Carstenz Base Camp. Base Camp elevation is 13,700 feet.
They are working hard to put themselves in position to summit!
