Hi everyone this is Ben calling in with Carstensz Pyramid Expedition. We just got down to base camp safe and sound.
The round trip from leaving base camp to summit and back down to base camp in just over 9 hours, which was a pretty good amount of time to get up and down, we did great. Everyone is doing good, we’re a little tired, but we are just getting ready to have lunch and then we’re going to just rest the rest of the afternoon and then see what the weather is going to do, looks like it’s probably going to rain. We were able to get up and down Carstensz without a drop of rain on us, which was incredible. Just a spectacular day, such a fun climb, we all had a great day today, and feeling great being back down here in base camp.
Tomorrow we are going to start trekking back out, it’s going to take us about four days back to Sugapa, so we will let you know how tomorrow goes. But we’re going to do a little celebrating here, resting, relaxing, pretty good after not sleeping all night last night, and get ready for the trek back out.
It’s been an awesome adventure so far and we‘ve still got a few more days left to get out, but follow along as we head back out to Sugapa. Talk to you soon.
