A duel between those two, Amundsen y Scott, one duel against a pitiless nature would not forgive the slightest mistake and a duel against themselves, that led to the limit their ability to organize as his own physical strength against the elements. No maps and no weather forecast is penetrated almost blindly in a world completely unknown.


This is all that keeps us inexorably to its true value dimension in the feat that these men carried out and will not be repeated again until nearly half a century later and the team repeated the march to the South Pole on board didair support to locate the best route and the ubiquity of communications kept them united to the world. In the history of exploration is not rare among men and nations racing to be the first to arrive at a singular point of the planet.
