Carstensz Team – Back In Timika

The entire Mountain Trip Carstensz Pyramid team is back in the coastal city of Timika, on the south shore of the island of Papua.  They flew out from Base Camp in two flights today.

We have a bit more information about the accident on the mountain.  Apparently, there was another guided team that climbed the first few pitches of the route in practice for a summit bid in the coming days.  They were reviewing the requisite skills to ascend and descend the route when the rock fell.

We are proud of the efforts of our team and ecstatic that they were able to summit the route on such a beautiful day, but our hearts go out to the family and friends of the Indonesian guide who lost his life.  Our team will make their way back to Bali in the coming days.
