Expedition to a land of ice and snow

TV3 NEWS: A group of New Zealanders heads off to Antarctica this month to go on an unexplored route to Mt Parry.

Mt Parry is 2520m high and is located on Brabant Island within British Antarctic territory.

The expedition will be the last of seven adventures funded through the Hillary Expedition Grants.

The grants have been awarded by Sport and Recreation New Zealand (Sparc)  in March last year.

On “Exploration Antarctica”, the climbers will sail to Brabant Island off the Antarctic Peninsula to make the first ascent of the West Ridge.

Sparc also plans to shoot a film about the five-week expedition.
