New Routes and First Ascents in Antarctica!

After climbing Mount Vinson last week, Sandra Leduc opted to remain in Antarctica with our guide, Joe Butler.  They have been climbing routes on peaks near the Union Glacier camp, and it sounds like they have summitted more than one mountain that had never felt the poke of crampons before!

Joe is carrying a DeLorme InReach GPS tracking device, which enables us to see where he and Sandra are down in Antarctica.  The platform for tracking is not great, but we have received a number of text messages from Joe, indicating that he and Sandra have climbed several first ascents.  We’ll have more details soon, but if you click on the following link and then choose the “Aerial” option for viewing the map, you’ll get a sense of where the two climbers have been exploring.
