Carstensz Pyramid Summiter

Samantha Larson

The youngest 7 Summitter - Summited Carstensz Pyramid on August ,2007!

Samantha Larson : "Carstensz Pyramid was the last of the seven summits for me. I have now climbed all seven of the Seven Summits (eight including both Australia's Mt. Kosciuszko and Carstensz Pyramid) with my father, and at age 18, I am the youngest person to have climbed the Seven Summits! We had a very smooth and successful expedition! Thanks so much for providing great logistics to make it possible for us to climb Carstensz Pyramid"

David Larson : "Thank you so much for ADVENTURE INDONESIA team's skill and expertise in organizing my climb of Carstensz Pyramid the 8th of my 8 summits. You guys are great!"

We summited Carstensz Pyramid on August 4, 2007! Carstensz Pyramid, in Indonesia's province of West Papua, is the "eighth" of the Seven Summits, as the highest peak in the continent of Oceania. Some people think that Oceania is the continent, which includes parts of Indonesia, rather than just Australia. Although it was a short 4-day climb, Carstensz Pyramid is the most technical of the Seven Summits. And although it is on the equator, at 16,024 feet it is high enough that we had snow and hail on the summit. We also had lots of rain, so we were soaked to the skin by the time we got back into camp on summit day. (www.samathalarson.com)

Samantha Larson (born 1988) is an American mountain climber from Long Beach, California. On May 16, 2007, at the age of 18, she became the youngest non-Nepalese woman to summit Mount Everest. By reaching the top of Everest, she also became the youngest person to have climbed the Seven Summits (the "Bass list"), the tallest mountains on each of the seven continents. She and her father, Dr. David Larson, became the first father-daughter team to complete the Seven Summits.[1] In August 2007 they climbed the Carstensz Pyramid, thereby also completing the "Messner list" of the Seven Summits.

Samantha Larson
She's on top of the world. Samantha Larson has climbed all of the Seven Summits, the highest mountain on each of the continents. Most recently, the 18-year-old tackled Mount Everest, making her possibly the youngest person to climb all seven of the world's highest points, including Europe's Mount Elbrus, North America's Mount McKinley and Australia's Mount Kosciuszko.

Larson started her climbing career with a 19,000-foot hike up Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. At 12, it seemed daunting to her, but not as treacherous as the summits to come. At 13, Larson climbed Mount Aconcagua in Argentina with her dad, as she always does. A feat came even before reaching the top -- 14 is the minimum age for the climb, so she needed special permission.
