Trans-Antarctic Solo

The first solo, unsupported and unassisted crossing of Antarctica

In November 2017, Ben will set out to make the first solo, unsupported and unassisted crossing of Antarctica.

This west-to-east traverse from Berkner Island to the Ross Ice Shelf via the South Pole was planned by Ben’s friend Lt Col Henry Worsley, who nearly completed the expedition before falling ill and passing away in hospital in Chile in January 2016.

The journey remains unfinished.
