Carstensz Pyramid

Carstensz Pyramid: Team Checks in after Their Hike

Today our team completed a 10 hour hike through beautiful marshland.  We are getting into an area with limestone masses, passing by caves in the limestone cliffs. Quite spectacular!  Today’s hike was the first we’ve had in the rain.  But despite the wet conditions, everyone is in high spirits and doing very well.

Houston`s climate is not that bad after all. Hope you all will keep up the good spirit and enjoy the reward of being able to do what you are doing.What an experience it is. I am curious to see some pictures after you are all back in good health.

Alex, Mark and team, Amakane!Mark your blog reminds of a poem my Mom wrote “Oh give me a mountain to climb! Im leaving the jungle trail, the steamy swamps and the lowlands, give me a mountain to scale. I’ve been cut by the jungle grasses, I faint in the tropical heat, to plow through the mire is exhausting the mud has made heavy my feet….” You will soon be wondering at the towering crags above you, gasping at the vast unclimbed faces!  Hey that wall of roots is pretty wild, eh? 5.8 climbing in the jungle! Ka noae!

I hope all’s well with everyone and that it continues to be so!

How wonderful to even be in the vicinity of Carstensz!

Alex: Greetings from your New Jersey friends—i.e., Mark and Jim!

Perhaps we’ll see some posted photographs of the climb upon your return?

Blessings on All,
Jim
