  Mr Park South Pole/Everest/North Pole


 Mr Park, who has summited all 14 8000 meter peaks (and the 7 Summits is back ! After reaching the South Pole, he is expected to head to Mt Everest again and then head to the North pole to complete the Grand Slam. Mr. Park and other 4 Koreans started at the Hercules inlet on 30 Nov 2003 and reached the south pole on Jean 12th, 2004, in what appears to be the fastest to reach the South Pole unsupported.

Pictures of on Mr. Park walking to the south pole.
