Nikita Slotin, the guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Papua New Guinea:

Greetings from the group "I love PNG", from the other side of the Earth!  On November 8, we arrived at Betty's lodge, where we tasted delicious trout from her farm. On November 9, we moved to the base camp of Wilhelm Peak. The last part of the way we walked in boots in the pouring rain. We had dinner and went to bed.

November 10th. At 1:00 the start from the camp. The trail began through the forest along the lake, which we saw only on the descent. After an hour of walking, a sharp climb up and up the rocky trail began. The starry sky illuminated our path, everyone made a wish. At dawn, a stunning view of the surroundings opened up and with the first rays of the sun we saw our peak, on which we stood after half an hour. The last part was rocky, where we had to climb up, but it was worth it! At 7:00, the whole team reached Wilhelm Peak. At 12:00 we went down to the base camp, ate trout caught in the lake and went further down.

Betty had caviar from the farm waiting for us and congratulations. Today we are already at the hotel, celebrating the successful ascent of Giluwe and Wilhelm, by the way, according to some sources, Wilhelm Peak is the highest point of Australia (Oceania).
