Rock & Ice has an article on their website concerning your climb with him using your pics, and more. Thought they should haave at least named you instead of,"two other climbers". Anyway, good on you! Best wishes, and happy new year!
Upon returning to the base to pick up our stuff, Fred discovered that while he was climbing, a little girl camped at the nearest site with her family (her dad must have told her about Fred) wrote Fred an inspirational card! Fred was stoked, and walked with his head up as high as he could back to camp, with the card in one hand and his classy mountaineer coiled rope in the other.
As ever, the ladies love Fred Beckey! Watch him around your girlfriend...
Awesome. I had the opportunity to meet Fred and watch him climb almost 20 years ago. At the time I knew of him but my appreciation and admiration of him skyrocketed after that day and climbs more year after year. A true legend, I hope I get that opportunity once again.
I want to send Mr. Beckey a birthday card from all my 2nd graders. anyone know the mailing address of this dudes van? he must have a p.o. box somewhere. he is an inspiration and someone my young, suburban students now know about. climb on, fred! thanks, spainy
