Jack Long, traverse engineer of the of Wisconsin, said the route across the Point of Inaccessibil- 'ity is one of two under consideration. He said the alternate would allow the first check on some 'mountain peak reported in 1911 by Roald Amundsen, the first man to reach the pole. In either case, he said, the trek would cover miles and for the first time would use the South Pole as the jumping off point for a-surf ace traverse. Although the expedition is not scheduled to start -before next October, preparations already are under way. The Point of Inaccessibility, about 625 miles from the South Pole is the most remote point .inland from all coasts on the continent. It was reached by the Russians several years ago after a journey' over trackless territory from their base at Mirny on the Indian Ocean. i The however, are con- sidering trying to approach it.from a different direction, also over un- explored territory, then making a left, turn into additional trackless territory and finally returning. to the South Pole. The alternate traverse would first lead to the Horlick Mountains'in the quadrant of the continent facing the Pacific Ocean. Then it would make a right turn towards the Filchner Ice Shelf in the quadrant facing South America, and eventually turn back the pole. Long, a veteran of five traverses, said the location of certain peaks on the route to the pole as originally reported by Amundsen still is open to question.
