Mike Libecki travels to the most remote, exotic and untouched locations on the planet to pursue his passion for big wall and alpine first ascents, traverses, and other offbeat adventures, many of them completely alone. His presentation takes audiences to isolated areas in Antarctica, Greenland, and the border of China and Kyrgyzstan that are home to some of the largest unclimbed granite walls on the planet. Libecki will explain what it takes to climb big wall first ascents while filming, photographing and enduring some of the harshest environments and weather on Earth.

Libecki has been on expeditions and completed multiple first ascents in areas such as Africa, Baffin Island, Greenland, China, Madagascar, Kyrgysztan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Papua New Guinea, Russia, Venezuela and Antarctica. He has received numerous grants and awards, including the Shipton-Tilman Grant/Award from W.L.Gore & Associates, the Mug Stumps Award, the Lyman Spitzer/American Alpine Club Award, the Polartec Challenge Award and the Athlete Ambassador of the Year Award from Clif Bar.

I live for winter, from skiing to snowboarding to bobsledding to aprés skiing, it's all good. I live in Utah because it always snows here.
