After first flying to Bali, Greg and the team traveled to Timika in Papua. The past few days the team has been playing the proverbial waiting game. There was an issue with the helicopter which we’re happy to report has been resolved.
“We are ready to go! All the gear had been checked and weighed. It’s one of the challenges of climbing Carstensz. We have our harnesses rigged and have worked through our systems. We will be out the door tomorrow morning on the B3! Visiting this town has been interesting. Now it’s time to go climbing!” said Greg.
The weather has been good lately, and Greg reports some smoke and haze in the air from local forest fires. Our porters have hiked in through the jungle to the set up our Nasidome camp and the team is looking forward to meeting them.
Time to go!
