On January 13th 2016, after skiing completely solo, unassisted and unsupported for 39 days and 8 hours, Luke reached the bottom of the world, the South Pole. He had just become the first Scot, the Youngest Brit and the second youngest in history to achieve this feat. When Luke arrived at 90° South, he had skied over 730 miles (1175km), for 40 consecutive days, whilst climbing from sea level to a height of 9,000ft (c.2800m). He had just successfully completed an expedition and a challenge that less than 20 people in history have achieved.
