The Visnon Massif is a 4,892 metre-high and stretches 21 kilometres long. It is within the Sentinel Range of the Ellsworth Mountains that is around 1,200 km from the South Pole.
The mountain is said to be an extreme, high-altitude climb
According to Alpine Ascents, climbing up the Vinson mountain means a person should be comfortable enough to be climbing up to EIGHT hours a day.

A testament of loyalty from the Kingdom’s latest achiever!
The temperature reached 45 degrees below zero at the top
