RICHMOND, Va. -- Jeff Reynolds, with S2 Mountaineering, has just returned from Antarctica, where he climbed Mount Vinson with a team of fellow professional climbers.

That challenging, dangerous feat means Reynolds has now summitted the highest peaks on all seven continents.

He stopped by the CBS-6 studio to describe the journey, including traversing some of the most inhospitable and potentially deadly terrain on Earth, just to get to, a return from, the mountain itself.

Listen as he describes in this interview about skiing across glaciers and maneuvering around bottomless crevasses.
