Climbing Carstensz Pyramid

Petr Jahoda, our Papua & Carstensz Pyramid guide, was entrusted to organize the climbing of the Carstensz Pyramid by a well known climber Miroslav Caban. Miroslav Caban was the first Czech to finish the Seven Summits project, and second man in history to climb the Mount Everest without artificial oxygen within the Seven Summits project as reported in this article. The first one was Reinhold Messner. Miroslav Caban climbed the Carstensz Pyramid only with the help of our guide Petr Jahoda. It was Caban's last mountain in the Seven Summits project.
