In 2011, Conrad Anker, Renan Ozturk, and Jimmy Chin made the first ascent of the Shark’s Fin on Mount Meru. The 4,250-foot knife-edge of ice and granite was so compelling it had seen more than 20 attempts since 1993. Climbing awarded the achievement our Golden Piton Award for big wall climbing in 2012. Read our full summary of the ascent. For information about when and where you can see the full film, check out the official Meru website.
