About this title:

Synopsis: Carstensz Pyramid is the highest peak in Indonesia. It is one of the most difficult and rarely climbed of the Seven Summits. It requires trekking through equatorial jungles and rock climbing steep jagged limestone cliffs with frayed fixed ropes. It's mountaineering and adventure travel at an extreme level. Previous expeditions here have reported robbery, extortion, detention, bribery, abandonment, kidnapping, violence, and privation. State departments have issued warnings and alerts to avoid this mountain. There are no helicopters or rescue teams. Carstensz is not a forgiving mountain. One misstep here can lead to disaster. In April of 2013 the author was gravely injured while trekking through the muddy jungle, yet persisted in the face of adversity to climb at any cost. There is always some risk in adventure travel, and in defiance of all the warnings, a small group of climbers takes a shortcut out of the jungle and pays the price. This second edition includes corrections, clarifications, commentary and notes to assist the reader who isn't familiar with trekking, adventure travel, mountaineering or rock climbing. There is also a wealth of information for those eager to go on their own climb of Carstensz. Adventure awaits. Follow along on this third installment in the Seven Summits Quest series. Novella: 38,000+ words

About the Author: Charles Miske escaped from the cubicle seven years ago and embraced a fitness lifestyle based around climbing, hiking and running on the trails of his home states Utah and Colorado. On this journey he has lost 60 pounds and kept it off for over three years. His "carrot on a stick" has been the Seven Summits Quest, to climb the highest peaks on each of the seven continents. Twice he's competed in Elbrus Race, a skyrunning event on the slopes of the highest peak in Europe, deep in the Caucasus Mountains of Russia. "You can't race any higher in Europe" is the race slogan, and it's true, with a target finish line over 18,500' in elevation. He's also run in trail marathon and 50k events. Follow his blogs, Twitter and Facebook pages for more timely information, from the Seven Summits Quest, to fitness tips and articles as he builds his Seven Summits Body.
