Live on Everest

Jordan Successfully Reaches the Summit of Carstensz Pyramid

This is to all the person who’s waiting for the story from Indonesia, all the families, friends, lovers. This is the update about this smart kid Jordan Romero and his team Karen and Paul Romero. My name is Patrick, I am a person from Adventure Indonesia who arrange their accommodation in Nabire, last post before base camp.

‘Team America’ is the words we say in Indonesia for this three person. Amazing people Paul with his medical skill and specialty in High Altitude sickness, Karen a girl friend of Paul, very trained lady in outdoor world,an educator an a very nice lady. And off course the last one Jordan, a special 13 years old kid who loves nature, culture an climbing. Very kind and smart kid who just love adventure.

We need to wait so that the Helicopter is ready, but also to wait for the weather is good, but only about two days until the “summit attack” finally started. We had the visit to the beach during our waiting time. This is one thing interesting thing I experienced with them. They had like the whole people at the beaches on Sunday asking to take photograph of them that day, they are really exotic here in Nabire.

This was few of Jordan words before climbing the Carstensz,”Carstensz Pyramid would be by far the most technical mountain I would have ever climbed. It is also a very mentally challenging mountain to. It is not a mountain to make dumb choices on. Always make the right choices and you to can climb any mountain anywhere.” You see, he is a true climber.

And so it is. Today in the 2nd of September 2009, at 15.00 of East Indonesian Time this American Team, Paul Lewis Romero, Karen Dee Lundgren, Jordan Alexander Romero made it to the summit of Carstensz Pyramid.

They successfully Climbed 4,884 M ASL Mt. CARSTENSZ PYRAMID Expedition Highest Peak of Australia – Oceania in Papua Island, Indonesia at 15.00 (GMT +9). Welldone my American buddy! Congratulation to you Paul, Karen and Jordan. I’m waiting for you, in Nabire, ready to bring you to the nearest medical facilities, making sure you’re all OK!

Keep on searching for another summit, and tell the world that there is always a mountain to climb, a great destination to go in life, never waste life for doing nothing”.

    Congrats my friends and glad to hear of the success on bagging Carstensz Pyramid!

    Happy trails and never forget “attitude is everything” :) db

  • way to go Jordon! Carstenz is hard on the patience, we had to wait out weather on our trip as well. Hoping you’ll let me know when you come climb El Capitan. speed be with you. Hans

  • Thanks Hans, it’s great to hear from you.
    Jordan is indeed moving to the rock this year, he’s got good focus and discipline.
    He’s got a lot of energy into downhill biking now, that will hold him over until he can put his skis on. He and his buddies are going silly big these days. I’m trying to keep him from going inverted as long as I can.
    You knee well?

  • Congratulation Jordan. Success for your seven summits
    God Bless

  • johan

  • I just read the news you climb that mountain tomorrow morning. Wow, congratulation bro! Can’t believe you’re with me less than a year ago walking down the beach in Nabire and all those girls are so happy taking pictures with you. They are so right! You are remarkable! Keep sharing the insight and inspiration through your life. Like you said,”There’s always a mountain to climb!” It’s an honor being with you, Paul and Karen, even for such a short time in Heli Expedition Mt Carstensz Pyramid. Come back some school holiday someday, remember, trekking route is waiting.
