Every time I visit an area, or look in a climbing guide, I see Fred in the FA list. Has anyone ever made a list of his classic lines?

Fred told me that he's actually working on such a book now.

There is a list of pretty much all of his climbs through 1968 in the back of his book "Challenge of the North Cascades".

OF course he was plenty busy after that, but there are a lot of good ones in that list.

That was one of the better moments on this forum. :lol:

Serious though, that guy is a beast. I can't think of anyone who has such an impressive FA list. Guy still climbs hard too, even though he's north of 80. :shock:
