American alpinist Conrad Anker is one of the world’s most renowned adventurers, whose first ascent up Meru was made into an award-winning documentary film. Anker notably found George Mallory’s body on Everest in 1999, and then survived the avalanche that killed his climbing partner Alex Lowe and cameraman David Bridges that same year. He recently suffered a heart attack and stepped down from his role as team leader for the North Face. We caught up with him recently at his home in Bozeman, Montana. Welcome to the show.
