ThePoles.com posted a new story over the weekend that adventurer Adrian Hayes has announced his intention to seek his “third pole” by joining a guided, unsupported expedition to the South Pole during this year’s Antarctic season.
In the Spring, Adrian made the trip to the North Pole from Canada on an expedition that saw one supply drop. Last year he summitted Mount Everest, the tallest mountain on Earth, which is often referred to at the “Third Pole”. Now, he is hoping to complete his quest to visit the three poles by reaching the South Pole as well. He plans to begin the final expedition of his quest in November, when most of the Antarctic expeditions get underway. He’ll be a part of the “ANI South Pole Quest” team.
You can learn more about Adrian at his official website including re-caps of his other polar adventures, charity work, and motivational speaking.
