Clif Maloney Hikes in Exotic Places

[Clif on Mt. Vinson]

Clif Maloney extended his "hiking in exotic places" series to Antartica in November-December 2007. This is Clif on December 3, 2007 at 6:30 PM on the summit of Mount Vinson (16,067') - the highest mountain in the Antarctica. Clif believes he is the third oldest person and oldest American to have ever summited the mountain. He reports that they were very lucky on the weather and only had to spent 7 nights there. Although it was "summertime", temperatures were 30 degrees below zero and the mountain was aerobically equivalent to 19,000' due to the thinner air at the poles. The expedition took 3 weeks due to the difficulty flying to the mountain.
