Eventually, he gave up, skied out, and drove back to Bozeman. For 35 years Rock and Ice has committed to excellence and authenticity. He really understands the world these boys were in. My wife and I had lived in Bozeman in the early nineties, just out of college. When the trio reached the final pitch, Chin urged Conrad to lead the final pitch.

The main event that night was the passing of the team captaincy, from Anker to Hilaree Nelson. I've always tried to live a selfless life, to dedicate my life to others, like I've done with Alex's boys and Jenni and with the Sherpa community. Why this particular range of mountains? Mindful and appreciative of the beauty and grandeur of both places, he remains grounded by and connected with the partners who give such trips the full measure of value. These three are among the regulars in informal meetings of Bozeman men who call themselves the Scotch Club: occasional well-oiled nights in backcountry cabins. Lama spent two nights on the peak but retreated.

This eight-word forecast never fails. While I was climbing in the Salt Lake City region, Mugs Stump provided guidance, inspiration and direction. And yet before long I felt drawn to him—to his charisma, his sense of humor, his eagerness to listen, his over-the-topness. Lowe-Anker met us in the kitchen. I think a lot of it is stress. Pricing often varies according to the circumstances, including the talent's schedule, market conditions, length of presentation, and the location of the event. He attacked the rest of the evening this way: splitting wood, making a fire, rigging a tripod over the fire for the pot, cutting vegetables, cooking a stew, drinking beer, playing air guitar, crushing empty cans with the side of an axe.

I'll have fish a couple nights a week and poultry one night a week. At the top, they scattered the remains and said their farewells—closure, of a kind, eighteen years to the day after Lowe disappeared under the snow.

On his 12th trip to the continent, he established a new route with Chin on Ulvetanna, the highest peak in the area. Two years later, Lama returned to Lunag Ri alone—climbers are often bewitched by unfinished projects—and finally got it done. In the apartment that night, he wrote a fifteen-page letter and then took a fatal dose of painkillers and alcohol. There is no break during which your partner would do something. I had some weakening of tissue, but no necrosis, so that was a key thing. He does as many as seven sessions a day.

Anker has a knack for dramatic story lines. My seat fully reclined into a bed, which is exactly what I needed. As the night wore on, the climbers refilled their camping mugs with rum punch from a cooler, while the skiers and snowboarders twisted up joints on the porch of their villa. It runs some people out of the high country but draws others in. He made the first ascent, with Jimmy Chin and Renan Ozturk, in 2011, of Meru, a tower of rock and ice in India that Mugs Stump had attempted twice in the eighties.
