EpicTV Interviews: Conrad Anker

EpicTV Interviews: Alpinist Conrad Anker from EpicTVAdventure on Vimeo.

When Conrad Anker, Jimmy Chin, and Renan Ozturk made the first ascent of The Shark’s Fin on Meru Central in fall 2011, the climbing world called it “next level alpinism.” This spring, after begin shut down by poor conditions on the West Ridge of Everest, Anker quietly swung around to the South Col route and climbed the peak without oxygen. Yet despite his successful climbing achievements, Anker’s career hasn’t been without hardship. In this interview, he talks about the highs and lows of almost 40 years in the mountains.
