Equally at home in Antarctica, the Himalaya or his ice home in Hyalite Canyon in southwestern Montana, Conrad continues a deep appreciation for wild places that was passed on from his father and grandfather who hailed from Big Oak Flat, California, just outside Yosemite National Park. Conrad climbed Mount Rainier by the time he was 16. He met his first climbing mentor, the late iconic climber Mugs Stump, while studying at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City and working in a mountaineering store. The part-time carpenter and the late Alex Lowe–his climbing partner and best friend–went on to become climbing’s rock stars in the 90’s, setting speed records in the Himalaya and Antarctica. He has climbed the Everest three times, and his first ascent of the Meru Shark’s Fin in India with partners Jimmy Chin and Renan Ozturk in 2011, led to the award-winning documentary, Meru. His résumé also includes big wall first ascents in Zion National Park, first ascents in Antarctica, Pakistan’s Karakorum and on Yosemite’s El Capitan. Conrad serves on the board of the Protect our Winters, The American Himalayan Foundation, the Alex Lowe Charitable Foundation and the Rowell Fund for Tibet.
