Peak: Mt Vinson

Continent: Antarctica
Summit: 16,076 feet
Date: 2006

Mount Vinson lies in the southern portion of the Sentinel Range of the Ellsworth Mountains in Antarctica. At nearly eighty degrees South, it is a mere eight hundred miles from the South Pole. Mount Vinson, at 16,067 feet, has the distinction of being the highest point in our planet’s last great wilderness, as well as being in one of the most inaccessible ranges in the world.  Currently I am waiting for my funding to come through to allow a team, including wounded veterans, to attempt the summit.  This will be my 7th of the 7 summits.  Sponsors Welcome!
