Good afternoon,
This is the Carstensz team checking in. We had a hike today into our base camp we got in pretty early this morning, and have spent the day getting ready for a prep day tomorrow.  So tomorrow we will probably climb 6 - 8 pitches of rock as a warm up for Carstensz which we hope to attempt the following day.  Things are going great.  We are well established at base camp. It is raining still but there are long breaks of good weather during the day. And we’re certainly hoping to take advantage of that. That’s it for right now. We’ll check in again tomorrow after we’ve done our training.  Good night to all.
