/ Antarctic Climbing
There is a few commercial companies arranging that stuff now to climb unclimbed peaks, entry to go at. Just Goodle it and you'll find them. Usually sail from Ushuaia .
Some good stuff on Scott's blog from his stint with BAS which might give you a few ideas?
Or neither, depends who you ask.
2 weeks on Vinson with ALE/ANI = US$40K
2 weeks on small peaks in Heritage Range with some FAs = $27K+
X weeks in Queen Maud Land with TAC/ALCI = $30K+?
30 days on yacht down the Peninsula, possible FAs = $15K+?
2 weeks with a few days off a ship on the Peninsula = $8K+?
Note the question marks - it varies depending on what you do.
I have no financial interest in any of the above companies.

The numerous season reports on Dangerous Dave Hamilton's site give a decent idea of the scene at Vinson etc: http://www.highadventure.org.uk/antarctica-2008-2009.html and one interesting 2nd ascent of a big peak: http://www.highadventure.org.uk/vinson-ski-tour-2010.html
