  • Title: bio | Conrad Anker
    Descriptive info: Conrad Anker is a climber s climber, at home on a faraway alpine wall or the sparkling ice of his home canyon, Hyalite, located in the Gallatin Range of southwestern Montana.. Over decades in the mountains, he has come to value the rarified air of Antarctica, the Himalaya and Montana equally; inspired by the value of immersion in other ecosystems and cultures, he s become more fully enmeshed in both the physical and communal landscape of his hometown of Bozeman.. Conrad came to climbing by way of his family, learning a deep appreciation for the outdoors from his California childhood, an appreciation and respect that has deepened as climbing took him around the world.. That journey has taken him from the northern realms of Alaska and Baffin Island to the farthest southern reaches of Patagonia and Antarctica, where in 1997 he, with Alex Lowe and Jon Krakauer, climbed Rakekniven, a 2,500-foot wall in Queen Maud Land.. That climb led to both a film and magazine piece by the National Geographic, an organization that Conrad continues to collaborate with.. In Patagonia, Conrad climbed the three towers of the Cerro Torre group, ascending new routes on Torre Egger and Cerro Standhardt.. Across the globe in Pakistan's Karakorum, Conrad climbed the west face of Latok II via the route "Tsering Mosong," Balti for long life.. For perspective, the route begins at the altitude of Denali s summit, then climbs 26 vertical pitches before topping at 23,342 feet.. In Pakistan, Conrad and rock legend Peter Croft climbed Spansar Peak, a first ascent by way of a 7,000-foot ridge the pair ascended in a day with minimal gear.. In May 2012, Conrad summited Everest for the third time, leading an educational and research-based expedition to the Southeast Ridge with The North Face, National Geographic, The Mayo Clinic and Montana State University.. That summit came without supplemental oxygen, a distinction claimed only by the world  ...   by and connected with the partners who give such trips the full measure of value.. The Shark's Fin, an iconic spire that repelled some of the world s best alpinists for three decades, fulfilled the dream of Conrad s mentor, Mugs Stump, whose life convinced Conrad that life in the mountains was a life worthwhile.. When the trio reached the final pitch, Chin urged Conrad to lead the final pitch.. He demurred, offering the honor to Jimmy.. The Shark s Fin had been Mugs dream and then, for a while, mine, Anker wrote in Alpinist Magazine.. It was already time to pass on that metaphysical ball of knowledge to someone younger.. As captain of the The North Face Athlete Team, Conrad has something of a pulpit, and he s quick to use it, urging, for instance, climbers to be boots on the ground in observing the changes wrought by man-made climate change.. He s also civically active at home, serving on the boards of the Montana State University Leadership Institute, Protect Our Winters, Bozeman Ice Tower Foundation, Gallatin County Fair Board and the Alex Lowe Charitable Foundation, a Montana based non-profit that funds the Khumbu Climbing Center in Phortse, Nepal.. (www.. alexlowe.. ).. I ve learned that these things my family, my passion for climbing and for being a force for good in the local community and in the larger community are the source of happiness for me, he says.. I know that life will keep changing and keep throwing new challenges my way, but my intent is always to embrace them and explore them and find a way to turn them into an experience that s rewarding.. Even when we re suffering, whether it s in the mountains or because of something going on at home, trying situations are a way to understand our human condition.. You have to try to rise above the adversity.. I like doing that..

    Descriptive info: We are named for the coldest, most unforgiving side of a mountain.. We have helped explorers reach the most unfathomable heights of the Himalayas.. But The North Face legend begins, ironically, on a beach.. It was here in 1966 that two hiking enthusiasts resolved to follow their passions and founded a small mountaineering retail store.. Soon thereafter, that little shop became known as The North Face, a retailer of high-performance climbing and backpacking equipment.. BlueWater traces its roots to a family-owned textile business that began manufacturing in Georgia in 1903.. Our modern history began in 1969 when we manufactured the first American-made kernmantle caving rope.. After six consecutive generations in textile manufacturing BlueWater is THE standard in quality and durability.. At Black Diamond it's all about climbing and skiing.. We share the same experiences that you do on rock, ice and snow and these experiences push us to make the best gear  ...   present and future..

    Descriptive info: How Should I Learn To Be A Mountaineer?.. February 8th, 2014.. Step one: Read the essential texts.. Rock-star alpinist Conrad Anker, who leads The North Face s dream team of globetrotting expeditionists, recommends Mountaineering: The Freedom of the Hills.. First published 54 years ago by The Mountaineers climbing club in Seattle, the how-to guide is widely considered mountaineering s bible.. Anker calls it the most comprehensive tome on climbing.. Freedom is packed with lessons for the beginning climber, including sections on equipment, knot-tying, belaying, rappelling, and basic technique.. posted in.. Article Links.. /.. more.. Conrad Anker on How War Veterans and Climbers Share Similar Values.. I thought I was in solid shape until I tried to keep up with Conrad Anker, one of the best climbers in the world, on a short hike through the snowy trails of Hyalite Canyon, a beautiful gorge located just outside of Bozeman, Montana.. Conrad floats over the ground, while I merely stumble.. The most beautiful kind of heroism?.. Bode Miller is famous for skiing down mountains.. He has five Olympic medals, more than any other American ski racer in history.. In a few days, he will try to add to that trove in Sochi, Russia.. But there was a time when ascending mountains was equally prized.. Gumbies on the Gurney.. October 26th, 2013.. THE KICHATNAS are located approximately 45 miles southwest of the Denali massif in the Alaska Range.. Although the peaks are all under 9000 feet in elevation, what they lack in altitude, they make up for in steepness and intensity.. The Kichatnas have been described as an Alaskan Yosemite or a big version of the Bugaboos.. In addition to vast granite walls, the range is blessed with all the nastiness of Alaskan weather.. Unlike the Yosemite or other wall areas in the Lower Forty-Eight, help is not a shout away.. Our goal was to climb the southeast face.. The Forest Jobs and Recreation Act.. May 14th, 2013.. Etymology: the history of a linguistic form shown by tracing its development since its earliest recorded occurrence in the language where it is found, by tracing its transmission from one language to another.. As I reflect on our family vacation this past summer to the Pioneer Mountains, there is no finer attribute for our state than it s name.. Albeit with a slightly different pronunciation, Montana is mountain in Spanish.. The early explorers named the state after the dominant geologic features.. For the peaks that ring our valley, that nurture our rivers and provide cover for wildlife there is no finer attribute.. To live in place as scenic and unspoiled as Montana is pretty special.. We are, by our own admission, privileged to inhabit this state.. Daily Chronicle.. The Future of Education.. April 3rd, 2013..

On December 15th 2010 The National Atmospheric and Space Agency released the global temperatures for the preceding month.. The measurements were compiled and presented by The Goddard Institute of Space Studies.. The same month that saw a political shift in the US government was also the warmest in the past 130 years.. Once December s temperatures are factored in, 2010 could tie 2005 as the warmest since humans have been collecting accurate data.. The temperature is measured at 6300 meteorological stations and from satellite readings of ocean surface temperature.. Northern Europe was 4 degrees Celsius (7.. 2 degrees Fahrenheit) cooler while the Hudson Bay region of Canada was more then 10 degrees Celsius (18 degrees Fahrenheit) warmer.. Where as we had a cooler, wetter summer in Montana, central Russia experienced record high temperatures.. The global temperature for 2010 supports the fact that the rate of warming has not declined.. Seasons of Extinction.. November 4th, 2010.. The sun dips lower on the southern horizon till solstice on the 21st of December.. Each day we lose two minutes of sunlight.. The sun, low in the horizon, is less powerful and the reduced energy forces adaption upon all living things.. Trees, now dormant, have shed their leaves preparing for the bite of winter.. Birds, by and large, fly south on their annual migration for warmth and a place to raise their off spring.. Bears endure by hibernating, burrowing in to stave off cold and hunger.. As the ultimate tool users, we humans bundle up with tools sourced from the earth s resources.. From flight to hibernation to complex material systems each species has a unique way of adapting to seasons.. How each of these species reacts to seasonal change is an indicator of future adaptability to a warmer climate.. Tar Sands.. September 29th, 2010.. Liquid transportation fuel, petroleum in particular, are essential to human civilization.. The quality of life we cherish and defend is intrinsically linked to this volatile and global commodity.. A liter of oil has approximately 36,000 British Thermal Units, the measure used to raise one liter of water one degree Celsius.. This dense package of energy allows us near instant travel and has made our planet more connected via aircraft and automobile.. However the mobility, warmth and consumer goods created by petroleum come at a cost.. When combusted petroleum creates toxins that in concentrated amounts kill life..

    Descriptive info: The Lost Explorer $30.. 00.. signed by Conrad Anker.. Personally signed as you wish by Conrad Anker.. Price includes shipping within the U.. Please email pamela@conradanker.. com for out of country orders.. On June 8, 1924, George Leigh Mallory and Andrew "Sandy" Irvine were last seen climbing toward the summit of Mount Everest.. Clouds soon closed around them, and they vanished into history.. Ever since, mountaineers have wondered whether they reached the summit twenty-nine years before Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay.. On May 1, 1999, Conrad Anker, one of the world's strongest mountaineers, discovered Mallory's body lying facedown, frozen into the scree and naturally mummified at 27,000 feet on Everest's north face.. The condition of the body, as well as the artifacts found with Mallory, including goggles, an altimeter, and a carefully wrapped bundle of personal letters, are important clues in determining his fate.. Seventeen days later, Anker free-climbed the Second Step, a 90-foot sheer cliff that is the single hardest obstacle on the north ridge.. The first expedition known to have conquered the Second Step, a Chinese team in 1975, had tied a ladder to the cliff, leaving unanswered the question of whether Mallory could have climbed it in 1924.. Reflecting on the climb, Anker explains why he thinks Mallory and  ...   and photographs chosen to capture the danger, the intrigue, the legacy, and the prevailing power of this mountain in the world's imagination.. Geography, geology, history, and culture weave together in an eloquent narrative that stands as a foundation for many contributions, both archival and contemporary, representing the varied facets of the mountain and its meaning.. From its geological formation to the sherpas of Nepal, who have lived on its slopes so long its demands have influenced their genetics; from the challenges Everest presents for the most seasoned of climbers to the commercialization of treks and controversies surrounding them; and including the future of this mountain, already showing the impact of global warming in shrinking glaciers, depleted watersheds, and changing weather patterns? The story is epic, global in interest, and ever-changing, even though the mountain stands eternal above us all.. Archival maps and photographs plus the best images National Geographic photographers have taken of Everest combine with authoritative text to make this a book worthy of the mountain itself; the latest geographical knowledge is compiled on a new map, never before published.. Central to the book is world-renowned mountaineer Conrad Anker, who has climbed Everest at four times and leads the legacy expedition.. Continue Shopping.. Your Cart ( Item ).. Items Subtotal..
