Puncak Jaya is one of the most demanding of the Seven Summits

- being considered to have the highest technical rating,

although not the greatest physical demands.

The standard route is up the north face and along the summit ridge,

- all difficult rock climbing.

Puncak Jaya is also highly inaccessible requiring a 4 to 5 day, 100km hike

to the base camp from Timika, the nearest town with an airport.
