A Day in the Life of Conrad Anker

VIDEO PROFILE: BD athlete Conrad Anker ice climbing in Hyalite Canyon, Montana from Black Diamond Equipment on Vimeo.

The Black Diamond film crew visited Conrad Anker in Montana and put together this quick short. It's a simple video with a relaxed pace: Anker making coffee, packing his gear, ice climbing. Anker also takes the crew to a spot in the house where there is a shrine to Alex Lowe. The gear in the memorial includes a dawn patrol alarm and a Swiss Army Knife.

The Things They Carried

The video reminded me of an Outside shoot called The Things They Carried. One photo in that series was of Alex Lowe's children holding and wearing his gear. You can view it here.
