About Conrad Anker: Hold Fast: Yosemite to Everest to Meru

Presented by Speakers from the Edge

One of the greatest mountaineers of our time, Conrad Anker, is perhaps best known for locating Mallory’s body on Everest, searching for climbing partner Alex Lowe for two days straight after an avalanche gashed his head and cracked his ribs and for being leader of the The North Face climbing team – in this brand new show, 20 years on from finding Mallory, Conrad will talk all things mountaineering, including the 1924 Mallory & Irvine Everest expedition.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Conrad Anker: Hold Fast: Yosemite to Everest to Meru are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
