I hear he is considering retiring from climbing in five years.
I believe all ACC Vancouver socials are first-come first-served.

In 5 years he'll be 95. That's pretty good.

FRED BECKEY
Tuesday, February 26, 2013 @ 7:30 pm
ACC Vancouver Section monthly meeting
Van Dusen Gardens Floral Hall (Oak St. at 37th Ave.)

Fred Beckey, living legend and mountaineering icon, will be in Vancouver to present highlights from his recently published book, Fred Beckey's 100 Favourite North American Climbs. Affectionately known as the original dirtbag climber, Fred has devoted his life to making more first ascents than anyone. We are all familiar with his best known work: the 3 volume Cascade Alpine Guide.

He has done it all... from the Canadian Rockies, Cascade Range to Alaska. He is well known for searching out first ascents. Whether you are a mountaineer or rock climber, Fred's got something of interest to say to you.
Come out to this event and support Fred with your donation (min. $5.) and have chance to win a copy of Fred Beckey's 100 Favourite North American Climbs and other great prizes from Arc`teryx and Clif Bar.

For more details visit: www.accvancouver.ca
