      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Have you climbed with Fred Beckey?

Recommended Posts

I know a lot of you have! And if you have, there is undoubtedly some story or tidbit you have to share for Megan and Alex's effort. (This has been posted before, but posting it here on the Climbers board to get more eyes on it). Here are the details:


We are asking for your written contributions for a "Tribute Book" : a collaborative gift from anyone who has known Fred, climbed with Fred, or experienced mountain-life or trail life with Fred ….


Your one-to-three pages of storied experiences with Fred - in your own words - your thoughts, encounters, risks, incidents, transportation failures, food-gaffs, weather dangers, trail perils and reflections will all be bound up for him in a book for his reading ….

The writings and reflections of you and other climbers from around the globe that have spent time in his company and have become acquainted with him on any level will be a book that we know he will treasure.


We anticipate that some of these memories will be funny, sad, historical, sentimental, anecdotal, factual (fiction even??), etc. But we are looking forward to including all of them and presenting them in a bound book to him, from you, from us.



Be sure to include your FULL NAME and a telephone number.


Please also forward this request for stories to all those you feel would want to contribute their experiences to this labor of love.


Thank you in advance for the generosity of your memories.

Megan Bond and Alex Bertulis

I assume it is too late to submit a story?

I climbed with Fred to retrace his 1st ascent of Ingals Peak in the summer of 01.
