The Allardyce Range

“We stood between two gigantic black crags that seemed to have forced their way upwards through their icy covering. Before us was the Allardyce range, peak beyond peak, snow-clad and majestic, glittering in the sunshine. Sweeping down from their flanks were magnificent glaciers, noble to look upon, but, as we realized, threatening to our advance.”

— Frank Worsley
