Some of the older readers of this forum might know of prolific first ascenionist Fred Beckey. Responsible for many iconic and groundbreaking routes throughout North America including - along with Yvon Chouinard - the Beckey-Chouinard in the Bugaboos, Beckey was one of a kind.

Hello everyone !
I recently arrived in Tasmania as part of my cycling journey around Australia. Just spent 2 days in Hillwood and really enjoyed it, specially the quirky Far Side. Im planning to be around Lauceston for a while and then head elsewhere in the island.
Got some sport climbing gear including a rope but I'm very keen on finally starting trad. Did a trad course in NZ but never got to practice. Can climb 17s, maybe 18s once I warm up well :) Msg me if you're looking for a partner or know anyone who does ! My phone number is 0474 165 233 !
