Meet Liv Arnesen
It would be easy to judge 47-year-old Liv Arnesen solely on her past accomplishments. Her hat contains many impressive feathers: first woman to ski solo to the South Pole, team leader of the first women's unsupported crossing of the Greenland Ice Cap, member of an Everest team.

At first glance, 5-foot-3-inch Bancroft is not what you would expect in a hearty polar explorer. There is nothing outwardly outstanding about her: She is not a striking physical specimen like Liv, who is 5 feet 11 inches tall, and she doesn't have the huge personality of your typical high-profile adventurer. But like an iceberg, there is much more to Bancroft than meets the eye.
