Polar Vision South Pole ski documentary - blind man to the Pole

Posted: Apr 01, 2013 05:35 pm EDT

(Newsdesk) Hannah McKeand, who completed a record six full distance ski expeditions from coastal start points to the South Pole, said in an interview with ExplorersWeb that one of the people who inspires her is Alan Lock, her severely partially sighted client whom she led to the South Pole during the 2011-12 season.

Alan and the team has now released a documentary about their ski and sledge-hauling expedition from the Ronne-Filchner Ice Shelf to the Geographic South Pole, a distance of 890 km, which took them 39 days to complete.
