I summited Carstensz Pyramid on October 22, 2011. It was a great climb. Read the full trip report for all the details.

This is the audio dispatch I posted live from the summit; the 7th of my 7 Summits climbs.

These climbs are to raise Alzheimer’s awareness and $1M for research. I lost my mom and two aunts to Alzheimer’s. Please join me to end Alzheimer’s by making a donation today. Read the details.
