Beckey to be Awarded AAC Gold Medal


“The President's Gold Medal is given very rarely—this is the fourth time it has been given in the Club's 113-year history—for extraordinary accomplishments in the climbing world,” said AAC President Mark Kroese. “Fred Beckey is being recognized this year for a lifelong devotion to climbing and first ascents that is unmatched over generations. Fred has put climbing in front of virtually everything else in his life. We honor both his dedication to the craft and the thousands of routes he has left for us all to enjoy.”

It's nice and all I suppose, but I find myself wondering what took so long, and if Fred will give a shit...


If Fred is happy about this award, and I hope he is, heartfelt congratulations are in order. His contributions to climbing speak for themselves.
