Anyone know who did this drawing of Fred? It was in Rock+Ice #166. I don't have the issue in front of me and I can't decipher the signature.

Happy Birthday Fred!
I'd be disappointed if you didn't try to get at least a smooch from Fluoride.
You're an inspiration to many more people and in many more ways than you can imagine.
On Belay!

Happy birthday, Mr. Beckey. I've never met you but it didn't take me long to ask, 'just who the hell is this Beckey guy,' after following yet another of your FAs. Hope this is another great year for you, sir. Rock on.

I figured this'd be a good time to resurrect a fine profile of Fred from Jon Krakauer. Enjoy!

There seems to be a theme to the old goat...

Is Freddy back east?

When he's back out west he should stop by the mansion and get Hef to give him a Playmate.

Haven't had a chance to meet you yet Fred. Wanna take a run up El Cap with me next year? We proceed at a "gentlemanly" pace. At least stop by the El Cap Bridge for some beers, eh?

Cheers, and Happy Birthday!

P.S. I wanna be just like Fred when I grow up
