Statistical Climbing Guide for Fred Beckey

Recommended Posts

Wow. that is quite the effort you put into those articles!  I especially liked the summit register synopsis....

And FYI, I'm sure that Dallas chuckled because Fred didn't quite clear his "Difficult Ten".  And maybe that was the point.....

But to be honest, Dallas really admired Fred and climbed with him a fair bit over the years.

"Well, this is gonna be interesting....

The website is https://statisticalclimbingguideforfredbeckey.webador.com/articles and was also posted then deleted on NWHikers.net. The links to the articles don't work for me now.

Prior to the abrupt about-face, I skimmed through Chapter 18 regarding his Army service & discharge. It painted a less than flattering portrait but seemed to have plenty of documentation. 

Mr. Creeden has also posted other interesting historical info on NWHikers.

AI spoof (seems unlikely but wtf knows these days), the heavy hand of moderation, legal threats,  and/or just second thoughts and wanting to save it all for the definitely "not published by the Mountaineers" book? Inquiring minds want to know."

I thought it was pretty fascinating. If anything, it paints a "less than flattering portrait" of the military's policies, not Fred.

Yes, fascinating. The potential duplicity, not the potential acts themselves, is still seems less than flattering in my opinion regardless of the military policy at the time.

I was disappointed not to have made it to the other "controversial" section about the Everest expedition.
