Went up first time 11/11 2007. Got stuck in Mactown (on my way to pole) so I went up Ob Hill several times (three ascents one day). Second season I climbed it again several times since I was stuck in McM in both directions. The view towards black island is just extraordinary! One of the top 3 views I´ve came across.

Observation Hill is the best, easy way to exercise when staying at McMurdo Station, Antarctica. Reaching the summit takes less than 20 minutes if you hurry. The view is unlike anywhere else in the world. I climbed the peak 7 times during my stay, and wish i'd done it 70.
