As we steam straight on towards the start of the 2018-2019 Antarctic ski and climbing season, this video takes us back to last year when a team of North Face climbers traveled down to Queen Maud Land to make some first ascents on several rock walls and snowcapped peaks. TNF has slowly been releasing short teaser videos about this expedition and today they bring us one that shows just how difficult and demanding the weather conditions there can be. Climbing in the Antarctic isn’t easy, even for the likes of Conrad Anker, Jimmy Chin, and Alex Honnold.
