Vinson Massif Equipment List

Climbing in this intensely hostile environment obviously requires lots of specialist equipment. During the Antarctic summer, when the sky is cloudless the temperature inside a tent is between 0ºC and +10ºC. Snow storms are common. The temperature can drop to -35ºC on the summit.
