Carstensz Pyramid Dispatch December 4, 2008
Good Morning Mountain Madness, Mark here calling in with today’s dispatch. Our team arrived into base camp yesterday around 4:00pm. We started out with a beautiful day, climbing through the technical part of the trek to base camp; but the weather didn’t hold. Just before we arrived in camp it started to rain and kept raining many hours into the night. The team enjoyed a great dinner after getting warm and dry!
Today we work up to a pristine day. Small turquoise lakes surround our base camp; the scenery is just beautiful here! We are taking a full rest day today to get ready for our climb tomorrow. Everyone on the team extends a warm hello to friends and family!
