The list for Oceania is not complete. All five highest peaks are in West Papua and the fifth highest remains unclimbed at this point. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_highest_mountains_of_New_Guinea

(Also it’s more accurate to call it the Australian continental plate than Oceania)

It seems the fifth highest peak (Puncak Yamin) was in fact climbed in 2018 by an Indonesian expedition. That still leaves the sixth highest unclimbed. . .

Interesting, thanks Matthew.

But Mt Epperly is ‘only’ around 4512m, as we made the 3rd ascent (#1&2 both by Loretan) in 2008 and measured it. The 4th and 5th highest are either Mt Gardner (which we measured at 4573m in 2005) or Mt Kirkpatrick 4528m, which, being in the Transantarctic Mountains was too far away and expensive for us to get to 😉

Sumanatri is generally regarded as a sub summit of Puncak Jaya . Strangl climbed it “just in case” (along with a number of other “just in case” peaks)
The best list is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_highest_mountains_of_New_Guinea
