Conrad Anker

With first ascents and routes on walls that span from Antarctica to Patagonia and Alaska to the Himalaya, author and North Face athlete Conrad Anker is a modern climbing legend. His long list of ascents includes the west face of Latok II in Pakistan’s Karakoram, the three towers of the Cerro Toree Massif in Patagonia and the “Streaked Wall” in Zion. Anker was part of the expedition that discovered the body of George Mallory on Mt. Everest in 1999. In October of 2011, along with Jimmy Chin and Renan Ozturk, Anker realized a long-held dream when he topped out on the Shark’s Fin on Meru in the Himalaya. He lives in Bozeman, Montana, where he sits on the board of the Conservation Alliance, the Rowell Fund for Tibet and the Alex Lowe Charitable Foundation. Anker was Mountainfilm's 2018 Guest Director.
