Fred Beckey’s 100 Fav North American Climbs (Hardcover)
A great read for anyone with a keen interest in climbing or the history of the great American rock climber Fred Beckey, this hardcover edition of Fred Beckey’s 100 Fav North American Climbs features a combination of hand-drawn climbing topos, high quality photographs and written accounts. The introduction has been written by Alpinist Barry Blanchard and 100 routes are discussed and celebrated with honorable mentions of a few more. Enhanced by Beckey’s rich passion and love for climbing, each journey is described in detail which gives an authentic insight into each landscape.
Sadly passing in 2017, Fred Beckey is known for climbing more first ascents than any other North American climber. Continuing to follow his passion into his early ‘80s, his nomadic life and free spirited legacy is honoured through the feature documentary entitled ‘Dirtbag: The Legend of Fred Beckey’ released by Patagonia in 2018.
