Vince's Cross on Hut Point
On the hill above Scott's Discovery Hut is a memorial erected in 1904 for Seaman George T. Vince, a member of the 1901-04 British Antarctic Expedition. Vince got caught in a blizzard and instead of waiting it out, decided to try to get back to the ship. His fur-soled boots had little traction and he slid down a slope and off a cliff into McMurdo Sound.
