One of the world’s premiere mountain climbers, Conrad Anker, discovered British explorer George Mallory’s body, who died on Mount Everest in 1924, in 1999. The Wildest Dream: Conquest of Everest blends documentary and drama to tell this story. Months after the discovery Ander's climbing partner Alex Lowe died in a avalanche in the Himalayas; Anker was three feet away and lucky to survive. He subsequently married Lowe’s widow and adopted their three sons. He then returned to Everest to see if he could determine whether Mallory might have actually made it to the summit, 31 years before Sir Edmund Hillary became “the first man” to complete the summit. In a wide ranging conversation Anker, 47, discusses his life, these climbs, and media coverage of his life and death sport (16 minutes).
