Fred BEckey's 100 favorite north american climbs


Fred Beckey is one of America's most famous, prolific and charismatic mountain climbers. This book was a lifetime in the making. Fred was 88 years old when we came into the project. It took two years to organize his reams of material, edit, draw over 100 route maps, assemble and design what is now an anchoring component of every climbers library. His writing, knowledge of geology and history, and passion elevate climbing to a mythic level. If you're not a rock climber, read one chapter and you'll want to be. When I was first getting into rock climbing, Fred loomed large as the man who had bagged the first ascent of all the most beautiful and iconic routes at the best crags and ranges in the country. It was an honor to work on this project with him.
