Caption: Mount Erebus ascent expedition. Antarctic explorers Tryggve Gran (left), George Abbott (centre) and Frederick Hooper (right) flying flags at the summit of Mount Erebus (3794 metres) on 12 December 1912 during the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913). Also known as the Terra Nova Expedition and led by Robert Falcon Scott, a shore party of 33 spent two seasons exploring on and around the Ross Ice Shelf. Scott and four others had died in March 1912 on their return from the South Pole. While waiting for the return of the Terra Nova, other expeditions included this geological exploration and ascent of the active volcano Mount Erebus (4-12 December).
