Three huge alpinist badasses talking about the Shark's Fin, one of the biggest, badass climbs in recent memory. Should be an awesome talk. See description and link below for tickets.
The North Face® Athletes and AAC members Conrad Anker, Jimmy Chin, and Renan Ozturk return to the Garwhal Himalaya in Northern India to climb and summit the Shark’s Fin, a 5,000 foot rock and ice feature that no one has summited to this day. Having narrowly missed the summit during their 2008 attempt, the team is more determined and prepared to conquer the summit in 2011. This will be Conrad’s 3rd attempt on the Sharks Fin. In the game of high-altitude big-wall climbing, the Shark’s Fin lies right at the boundary of what’s possible. The peak’s inaccessible beauty has inspired many of the world’s best alpinists to attempt it in the past 25 years. In September 2008, over the course of 19 day attempt, The North Face® team faced severe storm, starvation rations, mind riot climbing and had an epic of their own.
