Conrad Anker (born November 27, 1962) is an American rock climber, mountaineer, and author. He was the team leader of The North Face climbing team for 26 years until 2018.[2] In 1999, he located George Mallory's body on Everest as a member of a search team looking for the remains of the British climber.[3] Anker suffered a widow maker heart attack in 2016 during an attempted ascent of Lunag Ri with David Lama. Anker was flown via air ambulance to Kathmandu where he underwent emergent coronary angioplasty with a stent placed in his proximal left anterior descending artery.[4] Afterwards he retired from high altitude mountaineering, but otherwise he continues his work.[5] He lives in Bozeman, Montana.[6]
