Fred Beckey is an audacious living legend who is responsible for more first ascents (over a 70-year span) than any other climber in North America. He is also the leading chronicler of the mountains of the Pacific Northwest; his guidebooks for the Cascades remain the standard. Expert in the geology, natural and social history of the mountain places he loves, Beckey is one of the great travel writers of any age. Now in his eighties – and still climbing – he is revered throughout the North American climbing community as the “original dirtbag.”
Loved the route descriptions and photos. I've climbed many of the routes in the good. Lots of nostalgia. A great read.Published 3 months ago by Evan Phillips
Amazing history of Seattle world famous mountaineer. A pioneer in climbing unclimbed peaks starting back in the 1940's. And still alive and climbing in his 90's.Published 11 months ago by daviddixon
Some route information. Great tick list.
If you climb, buy it, now!
Some mountain porn but more useful as a guide for aspiring mountaineers.
this is Beckeys magnum opus and has added many new climbs to my tick list. The history adds much to the climbs write up and the photos are stunning.Published 24 months ago by John Medosch
