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!

anyone read the coffee table book by Smithsonian called "Mountaineers: great tales of bravery and conquest"? Great book but Fred only gets a mention on Yvon Chouinard's bio page. Serious over site!

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...

Regardless of his previous accolades, climbing a few pitches of 5.6 at 90yrs old is and should be an inspiration to all of us, climbers and non-climbers alike.

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.

This short video of narrated photos is a cool tribute. There are a few of my photos of him in Baja.



spainy,
His Subaru is rarely at home in Seattle. Send an e-mail and I will give you my mailing address. Would be happy to forward the card to Beckey.
