Explorer Mike Libecki is the consummate adventurer who shows no signs of slowing down—2012 was his busiest year yet. In east Greenland, Libecki climbed icebergs, and just getting to the site from the boat was a challenge. Once there, the danger was that the floating ice he climbed would flip, causing him to drown or be crushed.

"The excitement of this kind of climbing—I have done it a lot—is incredible. Icebergs are challenging because of the ice condition/quality," says Libecki. "These moments never leave me; they are such an incredible, joyous feeling."
