The Legendary Fred Beckey

Fred Beckey remembered every route name, date and amusing anecdote during his 90 minute talk at Kendal Mountain Festival 2 years ago. We didn’t see him refer to his notes once. He was 92 years of age at the time and he was still climbing most days of the year.

I don’t know about you, but if I can still walk to the Co-op and carry my shopping home when I’m 92, I’ll be quite pleased. If I’m still climbing every day, I’ll add a bottle of champagne to my shopping list! Fred Beckey restores value to the overused word “Legend”. What an inspiration. Cheers!
