Puncak Jaya or Carstensz Pyramid the highest point in Australia and Oceania. The mountain is included in the list of "Seven summits" — the highest points in six parts of the world. It was this mountain which was conquered by professor Oleg Yastrebov, Director of the Law Institute of RUDN University.

In the case of Jaya, the most difficult for climbers was not so much climbing, but rather the rise to the base camp through the jungle with tropical rain and damp nights," underlined the Professor. In addition, "injured members of the expedition could not be evacuated by helicopters, and local residents who earn money as cab drivers, often go on strike during the expedition, requiring a great amount of money for their work," he said.

Professor Yastrebov has already conquered  Aconcagua (6962 m), Mont Blanc (4810 m), Kilimanjaro (5895 m), Elbrus (5642 m). He has been to the North and South poles of the Earth.

Rise to the highest point requires worked-out skills of climbing and special training. Oleg Yastrebov is an example of someone who is confidently moving towards the aim, and as a result achieves more! We congratulate the professor on the latest victory!
