High-altitude mountaineering demands one skill above all others: the ability to suffer. Mount Everest, which Conrad has climbed three times, is the peak that’s always in the media, but more challenging mountains rise in the Himalaya, including India’s ice-coated granite fang, Meru. Its East Face had defied climbers for two generations. The saga of Conrad’s ascent of Meru’s formidable east face, which had defied climbers for two generations, begins with a failed attempt in 2003, followed by a treacherous attempt in 2009, when an epic storm froze feet and forced retreat. Three years later, grit and determination brought Conrad and his team back to complete the climb, which Conrad regards as his most challenging.

Post-show VIP reception will be held at Trailblazer and will benefit Ragged Mountain Foundation.
