Antarctica is home to one of the greatest collections of unclimbed mountains on earth, but Antarctica is not unexplored. The mountains of Antarctica have a rich human history that spans a century and features some of the greatest names in the annals of exploration and mountaineering - Shackleton, Tilman, Hillary, Bonatti, Messner and many stars of modern alpinism have all been drawn South. The climbing in this other world traverses the vast empty ranges of the Transantarctic Mountains, past the soaring rock spires of Queen Maud Land, across the roof of the continent in the Sentinel Range, winding along the complex beauty of the Antarctic Peninsula and on up to the storm swept island of South Georgia.
