Carstensz Pyramid: Team Readies for Summit Attempt

Mark Tucker checking in from the Carstensz Pyramid Expedition.  All is well.  We had a great training day today.  We climbed a portion of the route just trying to familiarize ourselves with the terrain and technique.  Our team is doing very well.  We were pleasantly surprised at the abilities of our group here.
So, of course, it had to starting raining.  We did start out in some clear weather but the spicket turned on and it is raining right now.  We are going to take a look at the weather starting about midnight tonight.  And at some point we’ll pull the trigger and give it our best shot.  Safety is our number one priority but we are going to push it hard and hope that we get a chance to make the summit.
We look forward to climbing tonight but for now, we have to get some rest.
Thanks for checking in.
