Day 4 : We wrap-up last minute paperwork and secure our permit with the Indonesia government. You will have the opportunity to explore the ocean front city of Dempassar. We connect for our flight to West Papua and transfer to our hotel.
Day 5 : We'll get an early start for the helicopter flight to "The Lakes" Base Camp.
Day 6-7 : Acclimazation
Day 8 ( Summit Day) : We're off to the summit! The route is relatively straightforward and follows a line up the north face. After scrambling approximately 500 meters over mostly solid rock we will break out on the summit ridge where lines will be fixed in preparation for our descent. Our route here follows the ridge crest with grand exposure along the way. We pass four small notches as we rappel and use ascenders to negotiate these tricky sections. Our descent entails multiple rappels and scrambling. We will be on good, clean rock that provides excellent friction even in wet weather. This will be a long, difficult day of 12-18 hours roundtrip.
Day 9-11 : These extra days are to allow for a better weather window or extra days for acclimatization if needed.
Day 12 : We fly back to Timika and have our celebratory dinner.
Day 13 : Depart
Day 14 : Arrive back home.
