Pakistani Mountaineers Samina Baig and Mirza Ali successfully scale Mount Vinson in Antarctica

Pakistani mountaineers Samina Baig and Mirza Ali on Saturday successfully scaled Mount Vinson in Antarctica, according to the Alpine Federation of Pakistan.

The sister-brother mountaineer duo, which hails from Shimshal in Gilgit-Baltistan (G-B), has been on an eight-month expedition to climb seven summits on seven continents since the end of November 2013.

They successfully climbed the 6,962-metre Mount Aconcagua in Argentina in December 2013 to complete the first leg of their expedition, which aims to promote gender equality and world peace.
