  1. So did Mr Beckey do an updated version of any of his Alpine guides before he passed? or whats out already are his last publications?
  2. RIP Fred Beckey

    I only met Mr Beckey twice, once after a solo of chair peaks east face on a beautiful summer day of 93. He was hiking up the scee slope slowly with another man, so we chatted awhile. After he asked me what i did, he kinda scolded me, saying he wouldnt of done it without a belay. when hiking out, thinking of what he said, I tripped on the boulder field and went head over heals, hurting my shoulder bad, I was hoping he didnt see me! The second meeting was in 07 on tiger mountain, I was going up and passed him going down, so I cut my hike short to chat with him. My mind was swirling trying to think of which climbs to ask him about and I descided on the1st winter ascent of mt Robson 1961(?) and mt hunters west ridge with heinrich herrar(1954) I also aked him what Herman Ulrich was like as I read about his early ascents in the cascades and admired him. He was polite and anwsered my questions. At the parking lot he asked me if I wanted to head to Canada for some ski touring/climbing, he was already 84ish at that time!! I regretably told him I had to work the next day and we exchanged emails. I wish I would have gone though. RIP
  3. awesome photos! looks like a good route(as far as routes go on Mt Tahoma)
  4. in official winter there will be a gate about a mile before big 4, unless its an unusual dry warm winter, so its a full day (or more) of road skinning to get to the summer trailhead. although snowmobiles are allowed here. if not into this, maybe wait till early spring(but still winterish up high)
  5. cool, the rock looks really good, kinda like Ingalls peaks good stuff
  6. nice. that 3.5 hr approach is only after the snow melts on the mt loop road. its an extra 8-10 miles? if its closed, correct?
  7. played around on this in the 90s, fun stuff
  8. New route info, Guye Peak

    yes I cant imagine going up it as it was bad enough going down it. do it in late winter or spring would have been a better time. not much but some
