Climbing to the Top of Carstensz Pyramid - Summit day
Story of the Route to the top Of Carstensz Pyramid:
The route of the first ascent (original route from 1962) follows the path of least resistance via the right part of the North Face. Cracks and slabs alternating with scree lead to the first ridge. Once at the sandy foot of the rock face, a steep slab (75°) has to be mastered, which leads to a slightly flatter stretch with occasional short upswings. About halfway up, a scree basin follows, which leads through scree-filled gullies to the West Ridge, whose difficulty is graded III to IV on the UIAA scale, though large parts of it are easier. At the West Ridge, you follow the obvious line at the right side to the top of the ridge. The next section of the ridge shows several splits and gaps. The first and largest gap is crossed hanging from a fixed rope – a technique which, though it needs some getting used to, is very efficient and quick. What follows is the “Yellow Tower,” which can be passed over easy terrain on the right side. The next small gap isn’t too difficult to pass, provided you’ve got some flexibility and manage to cross it with a large spread step. After another short stretch on the wide ridge, you have to cross another gap, this time descending slightly and crossing a large chockstone to then, stepping wide, reach the other side. The upcoming gendarme is first climbed via a slab on the right side but then passed on the left side. Now, the summit is almost in reach; the terrain is getting easier and flatter, though there is a bit more scree. If you’re lucky enough to reach the summit before the daily rain showers, an amazing view down, reaching from the glacier remains to the 4000 metres lower rain forests, awaits you, while straight across, the glaciated summit of the Ngga Pulu is visible. The descent follows soon: Speed is key here, for the rain washes scree in and out of the gutters, and the small water falls combined with almost sub-zero temperature can quickly lead to hypothermia. Following the known route, the descent to base camp happens in a combination of climbing down and abseiling.
