Scouting the Glacier

Team members are now actively scouting by foot on Puncak Jaya, looking for the best drill spots, travel routes  and campsites. The man in red is Broxton Bird of Ohio State University. In brown, the appropriately named alpine veteran Keith Mountain of  the University of Louisville. At bottom: team leaders Dwi Susanto and Lonnie Thompson give a presentation on the project, while preparing to ascend themselves.
