Happy Birthday Beckey!
Not that he will view MountainProject or this thread. He isn't one to make a big deal out of birthdays.
Well, it is a big deal. So many decades of first ascents, exploring new areas, writing guidebooks and documenting mountaineering history. The man still has a vivid memory for the details of early ascents.
He remains just as obsessive about climbing, though his body is not up to the approaches. And still talking about writing more journal articles.

He has definitely advanced the sport, played a very big part in growing it. Although I think it is more than a sport to him......
