In the high-stakes game of big-wall climbing, the Shark’s Fin on Mount Meru may be the ultimate prize.
It’s a deadly route that has seen more failed attempts by elite climbing teams over the past 30 Years than any other ascent in the Himalayas.
When Conrad Anker, Jimmy Chin and Renan Ozturk attempted the 21,000ft climb they suffered set back after set back including dwindling supplies, 10 feet snow storms and sub-zero temperatures. Beaten back even when the summit is in sight, heartbroken and totally defeated, Anker, Chin and Ozturk face up to some extraordinary challenges that makes Meru a unique story of friendship, sacrifice, hope and obsession.
