Video: Climbing Poumaka with Mike Libecki and Angie Payne

This past February, climbers Mike Libecki and Angie Payne spent 16 days climbing a 1500-foot (458 meter) rock spire known as Poumaka. Located on a remote island in French Polynesia, the tower proved to be an 8-pitch challenge that involved heavy rains, slick surfaces, and plenty of mud.

This video takes us behind the scenes of that climb, as 3 Strings Productions looks to document the expedition. The result is a great look at an amazing climb, and a sneak peek at what goes on behind the scenes to capture these adventure films. Great stuff.
