A Climbing Wall In Antarctica

Here at the south pole, we have lots of recreation options – including a small climbing wall. It’s not directly in the station, but if you’re brave enough to venture out to the almost abandoned Summer Camp area, tucked inside an indescript wooden shack is this small, but awesome climbing wall. Just enough for a good pump.

The South Pole Climbing Wall is located in a random building about 400 meters away from the elevated station, in a zone called "summer camp".
