Join American mountaineer Conrad Anker for a rare behind-the-scenes look at the story behind The Wildest Dream: Conquest of Everest, the new National Geographic film in which he stars. Conrad will share his experiences on Everest, ranging from his discovery of the body of legendary climber George Mallory in 1999, to making the new film – a compelling account of adventure and courage on his recent climb to the top. With spectacular film footage, stunning photos, and thrilling stories, Conrad will show you how he retraced George Mallory’s steps to the summit of Everest in an attempt to provide new clues to the enduring mystery of his disappearance.
Conrad will be here at REI Bailey’s for a presentation at 2:00 PM on Saturday, August 7th.
