This is the highest peak in the Australasian continent and often the most difficult to gain access to of the seven summits. It appears as a mysterious and relatively unvisited climbing objective, flanked with glaciers and rising like a shark’s fin out of the mist of the jungle.

This expedition has the attributes of a classic rock climb combined with a rare cultural experience. It is a journey of discovery and achievement, and most likely your best chance of experiencing this part of the world and standing on the summit of this exotic peak.


  • Exotic and exhilarating rock climbing on the most remote of the 7 Summits.
  • Climb the highest mountain in Australasia; one of the most remote Seven Summits.
  • Adventure through equatorial jungle.
  • Helicopter supported expedition includes flight to base camp and numerous acclimatization days to prepare for summit day.
