Conrad Anker: Queen Maud Land, Antarctica
In 2017, The North Face dispatched a team of the world’s finest explorers to one of the world’s last great climbing frontiers: the Queen Maud Land territory. Here they spent a month climbing and establishing new routes on the remote frozen towers of the Wolf’s Jaw massif. Jimmy Chin and Conrad Anker tackled a new route on the 3,600-foot Ulvetanna; Savannah Cummins and Anna Pfaff summitted the towering Holtanna; and Alex Honnold and Cedar Wright, using techniques honed in Yosemite, blitzed up 13 different spires spread across the ice field. In total the team climbed 15 peaks in just 17 days.
Join us for an evening with Conrad Anker, one of the most prolific explorers and mountaineers alive today.
As usual the talk will finish with a Q&A.
