    Geology + Climbing around the world with Legendary Alpinist, Gray Thompson.

    “Within a day's drive of Missoula you will find some of the best ice climbing... in the world,” says Missoula's legendary alpinist Gray Thompson. Gray Thompson is a legendary climber and Geology Professor Emeritus at the University of Montana. Gray has been climbing since the mid 1960s and it's easier for him to think of the places he hasn't been rather then the places he has climbed. Gray has done more than a handful of first ascents on North Faces in the Canadian Rockies and worldwide including the Himalayas, Alps and Andes.
