When explorers Mike Libecki, Freddie Wilkinson, Cory Richards and Keith Ladzinski set out for the Wohlthat Mountain Range of Antarctica on a National Geographic grant to climb and explore this nearly uncharted part of the world, they had no idea what they were getting themselves into. It’s nearly impossible to prepare for a place this uninhabitable, almost as impossible as the chance of being rescued once you’re dropped off. Inland Antarctica is hailed as the largest desert in the world, a landscape that seems nearly lifeless, a frozen blue landscape. It’s a place ravished by katabatic winds, an endemic term referring to 100 mph merciless winds. The team set out on a first ascent mission to climb unnamed peaks and were left with an adventure they will never forget. The 45-Day Search For Unclimbed Peaks In Wild Antarctica | Katabatic, Teaser
