Fred Beckey's first ascents: is a complete list available?

Postby Jesus Malverde » Tue Sep 11, 2012 4:50 pm

Hi folks,

I just started reading Fred Beckey's 100 Favorite North American Climbs (a feast in many ways).

I'm curious, without contacting Fred himself, does anybody know if there is complete (or close to complete) list of his first ascents out there on the web? I've searched Summitpost and CascadeClimbers forums with no results. I've also searched the web in general, but my Google Fu is coming up short. Many references site hundreds of first ascents, has anybody (besides FB) actually seen a list of all these ascents compiled in one place? Me thinks it would be important to record/preserve for many reasons.

My apologies if this subject has been posted before.

Fred's 'Challenge of the N.Cascades' book has quite the list/chronology in the back, but it's far from complete

If you're looking for the complete list, I doubt FB even knows for sure.
