A pre-screening talk on how to survive your next hike in the Himalayas.

Film Synopsis

Three elite climbers fight through obsession and loss as they struggle to climb Mount Meru.

After attempting but failing to summit Meru Peak in the Indian Himalayas in 2008, Conrad Anker, Jimmy Chin, and Renan Ozturk return to the mountain in order to conquer its peak—a 4,000 foot wall known as the "Shark's Fin." As they climb, the men also document their ascent.
