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.
