Conrad Anker | Mountaineering and the Climate Crisis
There’s no arguing that Conrad Anker is one of the most accomplished climbers of our time. During his 30+ years as a professional climber, he’s completed numerous first ascents (including the infamous Shark’s Fin on Meru), set speed records on big mountains around the globe, and scaled many of the tallest and most technical peaks on the planet. In between expeditions and explorations, he’s busy paving the way for outdoor enthusiasts to participate in a different kind of adventure: environmental activism.
Join The Mountaineers on Thursday, September 24 for a virtual presentation from longtime Mountaineers member, Conrad Anker. He’ll shine some light on his favorite natural landscapes and the adventures they’ve afforded him, both here in the PNW and around the world. He will also candidly discuss the changes he’s seen to our wild places due to the negative impacts of the global climate crisis, and offer suggestions for how outdoor-minded individuals and organizations can help protect the places we love for generations to come.
All proceeds from ticket sales and donations will directly support The Mountaineers ongoing Conservation and Advocacy work.
