Libecki"To the Ends of the Earth"
Explorer's Presentation Benefit for Utah Environmental Congress
Thursday, April 23, 7:00pm
Brewvie's Cinema Pub

Mike Libecki, internationally famed explorer, will present slides and films from his adventures in a benefit for the Utah Environmental Congress on Thursday, April 23, at 7:00pm at Brewvies Cinema Pub.

Libecki's presentation, "To the Ends of the Earth," focuses on exploring absolute virgin Earth while seeking first ascents on big walls around the world, both completely alone and with partners. We will visit places from very different parts of the planet, like Venezuela to climb first ascents on the Tepuis in the Gran Sabana, Western China to climb first ascents on giant granite rock faces that are on the boarder of Kyrgyzstan and China, and Greenland to explore untouched fjords that are home to some of the largest unclimbed rock towers on the planet.

Admission is $5 to benefit the Utah Environmental Congress, Utah's only organization working to protect all six national forests in Utah. Ages 21 and older with ID. For more information, call the Utah Environmental Congress at 801-466-4055.
