Denver Museum of Nature & Science Hosts World-Class Climber Conrad Anker on May 11

Anker will share his experiences summiting Everest, discovering the body of George Mallory, and being featured in the IMAX Film, The Wildest Dream: Conquest of Everest

American rock climber, mountaineer, author, and environmental activist Conrad Anker will speak first-hand about his remarkable experiences during an event at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. Anker’s intrepid adventures have led him to challenging terrain all over the world including Alaska, Antarctica, Patagonia, and the Himalayas. He is featured in the IMAX film currently playing the Museum, The Wildest Dream: Conquest of Everest.

Anker has summitted Everest twice, and one of his expeditions resulted in the discovery of the body of George Mallory, the preeminent Everest explorer of the 1920s. In The Wildest Dream: Conquest of Everest, Anker retraces the journey of Mallory to determine whether he succeeded in summiting Everest before he died—making him the first to conquer the world’s highest peak.

An Evening with World-Class Climber, Conrad Anker will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 11 in Phipps IMAX Theater. Tickets are $12 for members and $15 for nonmembers. Anker will be available for book and DVD signings. For IMAX showtimes and prices please visit, .
