scalable mountains

They iinclude the Vinson Massif (Antarctica's tallest), Troll Castle, Mount Shinn, Mount Scott, and Mount Francais. The latter two mountains are relatively easy to reach by boat because they are located near, respectively, the Lamaire Channel and the Neumayer Channel on the Antarctica Peninsula.


The Antarctica continent also has many yet unscaled summits waiting for the right mountaineers.


Climbers must bring every piece of needed gear with them to Antarctica. There are no equipment supply centers.


Every climber faces exceptional hazards, including braving the world's coldest and windiest environment (sudden storms and white outs are not uncommon). And, expeditions climb in isolation, much more so than, say, if they were scaling Mount Everest. Emergency medical and rescue help is often completely unavailable.
