Detailed Product Description

London, 1962, 1st edition. 189 pp, 13 plates, maps. Black cloth hardcover with no dust jacket. Fine.

A 1961 attempt on Carstenz Pyramid with Heinrich Harrer, a "seven summit". 

The New Zealand Expedition to New Guinea's Highest Mountain. This the first account in English of climbing the Cartensz Pyramid (16,500 feet above sea level) in central West New Guinea (now Irian Jaya), and the wild unexplored country surrounding it; Philip Temple and five mountain climbers from New Zealand set off to attack the glaciated snow peaks of the Cartensz Range; it is written with zest for adventure, telling the excitements of men traversing virgin areas.
