Free solo climbing is not recommended by the Montana Office of Tourism (…Conrad did summit Mt. Everest twice).
“Montana after all in spanish means Mountain. It's what defines this wonderful state. It's big sky country. Sure, there's places with more horizon. The massive valleys ringed by snow-capped mountains, you have this feeling that anything's possible. ”— Conrad Anker
Conrad has traveled the world over. From pole to pole, top to bottom. Coordinating events, athletes, and sustainability initiatives for The North Face, he thrives in an environment without four walls or artificial lighting. In Montana he's found a natural home. A place where he can still get lost.
Explore Conrad's favorite places
Many of Conrad's favorite places fall along the way to a particular climbing spot from his home in Bozeman. Preferring a campfire to crowded bar, and with a tendency to explore the unbeaten path, these places won't be in most guidebooks.
