Video: Climbing the Polar Bear Fang with Mike Libecki

The Polar Bear Fang is a massive rock face located in a remote region of Greenland that climber Mike Libecki had been planning to climb for the past decade. Earlier in the year he finally made the pilgrimage to the mountain to attempt the first ascent of that virtually unknown wall. As you’ll see in the video below, it turned into quite an adventure in a wilderness setting that is strikingly beautiful.

In addition to overcoming the climb itself, the team faced other challenges that include trekking across glaciers, wandering polar bears, and training a younger brother who is not a climber on how to go up such a big wall.
