      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!

Information Request: # of Beckey 1st Ascents

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

Wrote Fred yesterday and asked if he had an idea of the number of first ascents he has made in his life. In classic Fred style he responded that he had no clue. "What can you do?!"

 

Anyway. I've tried to do research online and the best number I've found is "over 1000 in North America alone" number still feels vague and would like to try to get as close as I can.

 

Lowell? Anyone?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Aidan Haley

I'd say it is a WHOLE bunch. Especially if Fred can't remember how many.

 

We have a running joke if we think we have a first ascent. We always say Fred beat you to it. Fred has been everywhere. Just like the Johnny Cash song.
