Climb Carstensz Pyramid, a remote and exotic Seven Summits peak, with Adventure Consultants.

Equatorial mountaineering adventure. Exhilarating rock climbing.Possibly the most exotic mountaineering location on earth. Carstensz Pyramid in Western Papua is a large limestone escarpment jutting out of the rainforest. Coveted as the highest peak in Australasia, Carstensz is one of the most remote of the Seven Summits.

The mountain was first climbed in the 1960s on an expedition led by Heinrich Harrer of Eiger North Wall fame, yet has received few ascents due to factors such as intricate permit requirements and local unrest. We have been operating expeditions to Carstensz Pyramid since 1990, climbing the North face in a long day from Base Camp. The ascent involves a combination of scrambling and climbing using fixed ropes on rock and we recommend climbers have recent rock climbing and fixed rope training prior to the trip.

Our approach to the mountain takes us through wild jungles where local tribes live much as they have for thousands of years. This contributes immensely to the intrigue of this unique journey.

Where else on earth do we get to cohabitate with tribal members who are still using a spear or bow and arrows to hunt?

Whilst travel in this region is often problematic, the rewards of the adventure into this wild corner of the globe are substantial. Unlike any other peak you climb, this expedition will enable you to redefine adventure.
