The North Face and The North Face Breckenridge Store present The Impossible Climb

ALAMEDA, California—Sept. 19, 2013— The North Face, the world’s premier supplier of authentic, innovative and technically advanced outdoor apparel, equipment and footwear, today announced that Conrad Anker will come to Breckenridge, Colo., as part of the 2013 Never Stop Exploring Speaker Series. The live nationwide tour invites adventure fans from across the country to share in the incredible tales of 14 top athletes from The North Face Team.

Conrad Anker will recount his incredible story of climbing in the world’s most extreme conditions to Breckenridge residents on October 12. In The Impossible Climb, presented by The North Face and The North Face Breckenridge Store, Anker will offer an inspirational look at the depths of human endurance and share his amazing journeys.

Anker’s climbing career runs the gamut from Everest to Arctic big walls, but the vertical Sharks Fin on India’s Mount Meru pushed him the hardest. Demanding two grueling expeditions and a teeth-clenching dose of suffering, Meru was Conrad’s ultimate expedition.

The VIP meet and greet reception will take place prior to the main event at The North Face Breckenridge Store, located at 322 South Main Street at 5:30PM. It’ll include premium seating, wine and beer, and hors d’oeuvres from The Briar Rose restaurant. All proceeds from the VIP reception will go to the Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center (BOEC).
