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.
