Carstensz Pyramid October 29th Team 2018

The Mountain Trip Carstensz Pyramid expedition team is meeting today in Bali, Indonesia, a beautiful place to stop and regroup before heading further East to the island of Papua.  Carstensz Pyramid is a massive limestone peak in the middle of the island and towers over the jungle at 16,023 ft.  Carstensz Pyramid is the highest peak on the continent and one of the more exotic and elusive of the 7 summits.  The team will spend a day relaxing on the island of Bali and then take off on a late night flight tomorrow to Papua.
