Athlete Team Captain, The North Face & Co-Founder of Khumbu Climbing Center
Conrad Anker is a rock climber, mountaineer, and author whose ascents have been chronicled in numerous articles and films, including the award-winning documentary Meru. Conrad is the Athlete Team Captain for The North Face and has explored some of the world's most stunning terrain as he has summited peaks around the world, including Everest three times, but he finds as much inspiration and perspective on the public lands near his home as he does in his far-off adventures.
"Outdoor recreation is critical because it provides opportunities for inspiration and personal growth. At the same time, it is a major economic force in many communities in Montana and with the right support has the potential to have a much larger impact."
