Fred was alive and well when those diatoms which formed the limestone of the Dolomites were alive and well.
Rock!...oopsie.

I've been fortunate and met many a climbing legend so to speak but in the end the one meeting I still consider the greatest in my climbing time has been Fred.

He is and always will be to me the godfather of climbing.

Rock on Fred.

I agree. Rock on Fred. Every time I see him in action I feel like a wimp.:)

Wow! I just climbed that route this past Monday morning! It was "Torre Quarta Bassa, Regular Route" in the Cinque Torri. UIAA Gr. III+, 3 leads, according to Mauro Bernardi's guidebook. The first lead is quite polished by passage of probably 10,000 set of hands and feet.

Everybody else has climbed with him!

To call him a legend would be an understatement. I was lucky enough to see him give a slideshow in Tahoe few years back. I'm always inspired how he just keeps going and going.

The dude was the man at the Tahoe International Film Festival. It was at one of the casinos, I think in '08 or so. Might be the same event. Good times.
