Renowned Mountain Climber Conrad Anker to Speak
October 3

"We've 7-Elevened the adventure right out of our lives." So says world-famous mountain climber Conrad Anker. While the rest of us have been getting our thrills on extra-large Slurpees, Anker has been circling the globe in search of the most technically challenging climbing terrain on Earth. From the Himalayas to Alaska to Antarctica and Patagonia, Anker has toiled his way not only to the top of the world's highest peaks, but to the pinnacle of the climbing elite; few in this tightly knit subculture would dispute that he is the most versatile and accomplished climber of his time. Along with Thomas Millette, associate professor of geography and director of the Center for Environmental Literacy, Anker will participate in a wide-ranging discussion that will explore Anker's role in the discovery of the body of George Mallory on Everest, his climbing motivations and adventures, his Buddhist outlook on life, and his environmental ethic. The event, sponsored by the Center for Environmental Literacy, is part of the Weissman Center's Destinations: New Meanings of Travel series. It takes place Thursday, October 3, at 7 pm, in Gamble Auditorium. more>
