Climbing the Polar Bear Fang

Famed adventurer Mike Libecki has set a goal to do a hundred expeditions by the time he turns 100 years old. With over 65 expeditions and counting Libecki sets his sights on an unclimbed tower in Greenland called the Polar Bear Fang. The adventurer has been trying to reach this tower for the past ten years and has been thwarted three times. As Libecki prepares to make a fourth attempt on the tower, his little brother, an inexperienced climber, asks to come along. With his brother now a part of the expedition, Libecki's main focus turns from summiting the tower to making sure he doesn't kill his brother in the process of trying to achieve his goal.
