World-Renowned Mountaineer Conrad Anker Visits Australia for Speaker Series
To support the Mountain Youth Services Team, $10 from each ticket will be donated to aid the development of their Outdoor Explore bush adventure therapy program.
The master of technical mountaineering, Conrad has over 30 years of climbing and mountaineering experience under his belt, and is still chasing first ascents. He’s a visionary, a champion for the environment, a pioneer and the best comrade you’ll find at 25,000 feet—he’s dedicated every ounce of his being to this life.
At the two Speaker Series events, Conrad will present his life of adventure, sharing what inspired him to pursue a career in the mountains along with tales and stunning footage of climbing the world’s most remote and challenging peaks, from expeditions on Meru to Queen Maud Land in Antarctica. Following the presentation will be an exclusive interview with Conrad, conducted by The North Face adventurer, Justin Jones.
On his visit to Australia, Conrad Anker says, “Australia captures the imagination. Since I was a youngster I've longed to visit this continent and the cheerful people that make it special. Thanks to The North Face I'll have the chance to visit the Blue Mountains and share my story of adventure and alpinism with audiences in Sydney and Melbourne. I'm looking forward to meeting new friends and experiencing Australia.”
The North Face will also be hosting an up-close and personal experience with Conrad Anker set in the Megalong Valley in NSW, for storytelling & fodder by the campfire.
