“Where It All Began”

“Little did I know, a simple community slideshow would drive my life in a direction I never imagined.  Three friends and I left Missoula on a trip that would open my eyes to adventure and leave me with a hunger that I have yet to satisfy.”- Chris Gibisch


Born in Chicago Illinois, Chris moved to Montana in the fall of 1998 for academics, but just as importantly, the outdoors.  An obsession with climbing, challenged this balance, but he eventually earned a degree in Forestry and later, in Respiratory Care.  His pursuit of climbing started in North America, but eventually expanded to Europe, Africa, and Asia.  The craving for the next expedition has him always daydreaming and training.  When time provides, Chris can be found running around Montana, or quietly cranking out laps on the auto belays at Freestone.  

Location:  506 Toole Avenue, Missoula
Presentation begins at 6:00pm.  Free and open to everyone.
