Slackers - using helicopters to get both themselves and the coring rig up there. When I was rock coring in the mountains of PNG, we had to carry all the coring rig parts from the end of the world's worse roads, and uphill to the coring location and assemble the thing.
Wicked footage though. The mountains in that part of the world are most majestic. When climbing in that area, I always think the alpine mountain tops overlooking the hot and humid jungles is most surreal. Some of the cloud formations in those parts are utterly amazing.
An amazing history (geological, glaciological and climbing) in that area. Facinating concept that back in the 30s Colijn et al. summited Ngga Pulu, the then highest peak in Oceania (assumed by educated assessment) surpassing the Pyramid in height.
I had a mesmerizing time standing on top of a mountain on that tropical island during a blizzard so I can understand the allure of reaching it's highest point back in the day.
