“It’s 21st-century exploration, at the edge of impossible.”
An excellent article in The Financial Times on the latest expedition of Leo Houlding.
He is planning to conquer a peak called the Spectre.
A few years ago, I heard Leo speak at the GA Conference on a previous expedition to Antarctica, and the logistics of getting there and completing the climb.
My notes and some links from that 2015 lecture are here.
He will be using Union Glacier as a base: a location which I have used many times before with students as a place to teach about.
The expedition website is here.
Good luck to Leo when he heads off next month...
