2015 marks another season with 100% success for ANI climbers on Antarctica's highest peak. 33 ANI guests travelled to Mount Vinson over five departures, from mid-November through late January. All reached the summit, together with a total of 16 ANI guides and rangers, many of whom made multiple ascents. Congratulations to everyone, especially to those climbers who completed their Seven Summits challenge.
It is with great sadness that we report that polar expeditioner Henry Worsley died at a hospital in Punta Arenas, Chile yesterday after complications caused by bacterial peritonitis. Henry returned from Antarctica on January 23 after nearly completing his Shackleton Solo Expedition.
Al may be the most elusive member of the ANI team and it took a bit of bribery to trick him into giving us an ‘interview’. Al works behind the scenes, overseeing ANI's mechanical services department and without him, Union Glacier Camp wouldn't run. So meet the man behind the machines - and be warned - the truth about Al is hidden amongst a heavy dose of dry British humor.
