Episode 081 of The Adventure Podcast features one of the world’s elite alpinists, Conrad Anker. Some of Conrad’s achievements in the world of mountaineering include summiting Everest without the aid of supplemental oxygen, a first ascent of Meru’s “shark fin” route, numerous Antarctica expeditions, and multiple ascents of El Capitan in Yosemite National Park. He’s much more than just a climber though, he’s an activist, a mentor and a family man.
In this episode, host Matt Pycroft hands the stage over to Conrad to discuss topics and issues important to him. What ensues is a meaningful, rather thought-provoking conversation between two friends touching on everything from long-debated topics like footfall on Everest to mentorship to living up to people’s expectations. They talk about the accessibility of the mountains, how mountaineering has changed over the years, and reflect on the stages of life. It's Conrad Anker as you've never heard him before...
Listen for tales from a legend, an insight into the inner workings of the world of mountaineering and Conrad's views on the world.
