At 4892 meters (16,050 ft) in height, Mt. Vinson isn’t the tallest of the Seven Summits by a long shot. But it’s remote location in the wild-open expanse of Antarctica makes it a challenge to reach, while the harsh, cold conditions can be dangerous as well. Still, dozens of climbers visit the mountain each year in an effort to reach the top. The video below is a 17-minute short film that follows one such expedition that was led up the mountain by Adventure Network International. It is a great look at a Vinson climb, and provides some spectacular views of the Antarctic continent.
