The North Face is excited to present Conrad Anker on his first visit to Australia this July.
Conrad Anker, the Captain of The North Face Global Athlete Team, will be taking part in The North Face Speaker Series Australia in Sydney. Tickets are now on sale for this inspiring one-night-only event.
The master of technical mountaineering, Anker has over 30 years of climbing and mountaineering experience under his belt and is still chasing first ascents. He's a visionary, a champion for the environment, a pioneer and the best comrade you'll find at 25,000 feet - he's dedicated every ounce of his being to this life.
This intimate event, entitled 'Conrad Anker: A Life in Adventure', will see Anker share his life story. Discover what inspired him to pursue a career in the mountains and hear tales of his extraordinary expeditions, including Meru Peak in the Garhwal Himalayas and Rakekniven Peak in the Filchner Mountains, Queen Maud Land. Guests will also be treated to stunning footage of the world's most remote and challenging peaks.
Following the presentation, Anker will partake in an exclusive interview conducted by The North Face adventurer, Justin Jones.
On his visit to Australia, Anker says, "Australia captures the imagination. Since I was a youngster I've longed to visit this continent and the cheerful people that make it special. Thanks to The North Face I'll have the chance to visit the Blue Mountains and share my story of adventure and alpinism with audiences in Sydney and Melbourne. I'm looking forward to meeting new friends and experiencing Australia."
The North Face Speaker Series with Conrad Anker will take place on Tuesday, 10 July, 7pm at Seymour Centre, York Theatre. Tickets are now on sale through www.seymourcentre.com or call
