MT Vinson - 16,067', Antarctica's Highest Peak
High Altitude Mountaineering
A big mountain, in a cold place, would be one way to describe Mt. Vinson. But there is definitely something more to it than that. It may be the great sense of achievement you will get by climbing one of the most isolated peaks in the world. With temperatures ranging anywhere from -40 to +35 degrees Fahrenheit, you can only wonder at the ability man has at surviving let alone having fun in these conditions.
