When it is compared with Kosciuszko , which is has no challenge for climbers (it is actually a mere short trek with zero difficulty), it is more technical. Mountaineers rank this mountain as the true seventh summit because of its remoteness and challenging technical climbing. You will experience a variety of interesting and challenging routes at varying grades when you climb this large limestone mountain. The standard route up the West Ridge is a relatively straightforward but technical scramble, with the occasional steeper rock pitch at Severe (5.3-5.4) grading.
For an experienced climber, the technical challenge of climbing Puncak Jaya is not a problem. But, even an expert, you should not underestimate the trekking path during your expedition to base camp. An expedition to the most exotic mountaineering location on earth is not just a climbing venture, but a journey back in time through tribal ancestries and an incredible rich and rewarding experience. *unfortunately corcening the security reason, we are not running trekking expedition right know - the only option to get to Yellow Valley is by helicopter from Timika*
