The first Arab to walk to the magnetic North Pole has a new challenge in his sights – this time on the other side of the world.

Nabil ‘Nabs’ Al-Busaidi is currently attempting to scale the Antarctic’s highest peak, the 4,892m Mount Vinson.

If he succeeds the 39-year-old Omani will join only 1,400 others who have managed to scale the mountain – one of the world’s Seven Summits, or highest peaks on the seven continents.

Already a week into the journey, Nabs has made it to the Mount Vinson base camp and is beginning the ascent.
