Alpinists Conrad Anker & Jimmy Chin Presents

MOUNT MERU-"THE CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE": TEAMWORK AND TENACITY

IN THE HIMALAYA

 

Deep in the Indian Himalaya, 22,000-foot Mount Meru presents the ultimate test to alpinists Conrad Anker, Jimmy Chin and Renan Ozturk. Aiming for a summit atop thousands of feet of sheer granite, their eighteen-day ascent is racked by storm and cold. Delving deep into their souls to find the will to continue, and relying on teamwork and trust, they survive the hardest climb of their careers.

I just saw this presentation last Friday... I loved that it was not a we-climbed-mt-blahblahblah-&-almost-died story, but just as exciting. Not mentioned in the promo stuff:

 

-Galen Rowell was part of the team (it was his last expedition, a month or two before the plane crash)

-Rick "K2 sans O2" Ridgeway was also a part of this.

 

not sure if this FB link works but here's a clip. Prolly not the most riveting part of the expedition but the background of the 17K plateau foreshadows later parts of the presentation http://www.facebook.com/home.php?ref=logo#/video/video.php?v=165156033835
