FIRST ASCENT: Return To Antarctica


In January, 2011, Eddie Bauer / First Ascent guides Peter Whittaker, Ed Viesturs, Seth Waterfall, Caroline George, Jake Norton, cinematographer Kent Harvey, and their clients departed for Antarctica.

The expedition was a 45th anniversary climb commemorating the 1966 first ascent of Vinson Massif – an expedition that was outfitted by Eddie Bauer.

After the successful summit of Vinson, half the team departed and the other half stayed behind to make some first ski descents on untouched peaks of Antarctica.

Jake completed two first ascents on that expedition: Mount Solveig via the LiRye Face with Seth Waterfall, and “Ilyushin Fields” on Mount Rossman with Kent Harvey.
