Fred Beckey's memorial service is on 12/3 at the Mountaineer's Club House. What's your favorite memory of Fred? Did you climb with him? Were you inspired by him? Did you read his books and use his guides? For 80 years he climbed and was the Godfather of American climbing. We'll miss him, but his routes will continue to inspire all climbers.

Have you heard of/seen the Dirtbag movie? It’s full of Beckey memories and stories.
