Fred Beckey oral history

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm working on a profile of Fred Beckey and I'm interested in collecting stories, anecdotes, and recollections from climbers and friends who know him well. If you have good/funny/telling Beckey tales, send them to me at jnyberg@outsidemag.com

Cheers,

Justin Nyberg

If you don't have it already, you should try to find a copy of "Fred Beckey Stories: A Tribute to a Climbing Legend" edited by Alex Bertulis for Fred's 86th birthday in January 2009. It contains lots of stories from his friends. You might be able to buy a copy from the Mountaineers bookstore. Try bookstore@mountaineers.org or 206-521-6002.

If I ever get to meet Fred again, I'd like to tell him the real reason Trigger Finger pinnacle fell over at Peshastin back in the 1970's....kind of a interesting story

 

Come on and spill the beans
