Mike Libecki, who has completed nearly seventy expeditions to the most remote reaches of our planet, has managed to come home each and every time. It is not that Libecki is any luckier than you or I, it is just that he intimately understands the complicated relationship climbers and adventurers have with risk. And crucially, how to calculate it so that he may return to his family every time. Libecki’s attempt to climb the Poumaka tower in French Polynesia may have been thwarted, but under this lens, the expedition was a success.
