The British woman, Rosie Stancer, 43,
will be attempting the same route as Fiona Thornewill,
from Patriot Hills to the South Pole.
Totally solo and unsupported.
Rosie has opted not to use any method of traction,
such as power-kites, for example.
Rosie is no stranger to the Poles, having already
achieved a double first as a key team member in both
the first ever all-women expedition to the North Pole in 1997
and the first British all-women (unguided)
expedition to the South Pole 1999-2000.
