      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      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!

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
