Description

Climbing objectives in Antarctica include Vinson Massif, the high point of the continent (16,000+ feet), Mount Tyree (the second highest peak that apparently has only been ascended a few times), the impressive rock spires in Queen Maud Land and thousands of other peaks.

Numerous companies run trips to Vinson each year. Getting to other areas is logistically difficult (and likely expensive).

Getting There

Most folks going to climb in Antarctica reach the continent by plane. Flights usually originate in South America or New Zealand.
