Overview

“The time is now. Life is sweet. Loving life.” Such are the taglines of expedition madman Mike Libecki, whose self- described Obsessive Expedition Climbing Disorder has propelled him on roughly 70 expeditions in some of the most remote rock faces on the planet. Two years after barely succeeding on climbing a tower called Poumaka in French Polynesia, he returns to attempt the nearby sacred tower of Matehenui. But when conditions become more than sketchy, he is reminded that sometimes success has a different meaning than standing on a summit.
