Carstensz Pyramid trip update!!!
All 2003 trips were canceled due to the war and other factors. We have now secured the permits for a onetime peace climb in August.
This august we are organizing the Carstensz Peace climb and it looks that this might be the last climb ever... Government and Army are giving us a hard time, Freeport mine as well. All expeditions have been canceled this year! Last expedition on Carstensz was our private expedition for 6 Norwegians last December.
Now we got permission from the Ministry of Tourism to promote the country using the one time Peace climb with many climbers, but I really doubt if there is ever going to be another CP climb after that...
It will be from august 7, about 2.5 weeks, so keep it in mind. Costs will be $5900 from Jakarta.
This year there have been no CP expeditions and the August climb is the only one scheduled. We lost quite a lot of money on the canceled trips of February and March, if there was a possibility of running more trips we would surely do that.
The entire area was closed for a few years in the nineties. I honestly cannot tell you if this will happen again. It might be possible that the area will stay open and we might be able to run regular trips this or coming years. But at this moment only the August climb is sure. This is also the first and only climb where more than 8 foreigners are allowed to be in the area at the same time...
