mount vinson

Submit Review
You are on Mount Vinson, Antarctica's highest peak and one of the Seven Summits. Snowy peaks and glaciers surround you and the horizon curves. You savor this moment. The challenges you overcame make you appreciate the beauty and achievement more. Mount Vinson is in the Sentinel Range of the Ellsworth Mountains, deep inside Antarctica. It was first climbed on December 18, 1966 and remained untouched for years because of its remoteness. In 1985, we started to help climbers reach this mountain and we still do today. You will follow the Branscomb Shoulder Route, the "standard route", with glaciers, slopes, a plateau, and a ridge. Your guide will plan your climb for safety and success. To climb Mount Vinson is to challenge yourself on a unique mountain in one of the most extreme places on Earth.
