Collect your gear. Set out for Antarctica. Meet your guide. Start your trek by making your way to base camp on the Branscomb Glacier, where you will recover from your travels, acclimatize, and prepare for your journey up the mountain. This mountain is incredibly remote, and the conditions are often extreme. When you summit, you will have reached the top of the bottom of the world!
Standing tall at the bottom of the world near the Ronne Ice Shelf, the Sentinel Mountain Range is crowned by Mount Vinson Massif at 4,892m (16,050 ft). This is the highest point of Antarctica and the most remote and inaccessible of the summit series. Grab your shoes and find some hills; it is time to test your mettle against the mountain.
Can you conquer Vinson Massif, or will the mountain conquer you?
