Boulder man completes first unassisted, unsupported crossing of Antarctica

Waters and Skog at the finish

Add this to your Boulder uber-athlete files: Ryan Waters, 36, of Boulder, finished crossing Antarctica with expedition partner Cecilie Skog on Thursday. Most people use kites to ski-sail across the continent, but Waters and Skog crossed without skis or other support.

The pair skied and walked about 1,100 miles for 70 days — starting the journey with 300-pound sledges — to complete their crossing via the South Pole.
