Heading to Carstensz

We are off to climb Puncak Jaya or Carstensz Pyramid, the highest summit of Mount Carstensz in the Sudirman Range of the western central highlands of Papua province, Indonesia. <br /><br />At 16,023 ft (4,884 m) it is the highest summit in Australia and Oceania, but due to its location on the island of New Guinea, it doesn't technically live on a continent and is excluded from the Seven Summits list. Some consider it the eighth of the Seven Summits project (7 summits on 7 tallest mountains on 7 Continents).<br /><br />Follow our progress toward the summit by signing up at exploradus.com.<br />
