On Wednesday night, October 10th at 7 p.m., alpinists Conrad Anker, Jimmy Chin, and Renan Ozturk will be presenting the saga of their ascent of India's Mount Meru, an ice- coated granite fang in the Himalayas.In 2008, the team of three suffered a devastating defeat a mere few hundred feet from the summit. Three years later, the men returned to Meru with more grit, determination, and the strength to fit back to the summit.
