For those of you who have been wondering where all of my historical work and posting over the last few years is leading, I am proud to announce that I filed last week for nonprofit status for the North American Climbing History Archives (NACHA).

The NACHA mission is: To gather, document and celebrate climbing history in image, word and artifact with special emphasis on personalities and events in North America and fostering climbing culture.

We have big plans beyond the Festivals that have been the main NACHA activity besides posting here on the ST. If you are interested in finding out more about where NACHA is going and would like to support our work please contact me. The road ahead is exciting and daunting at the same time and it will take a committed team effort to bring our fantastic legacy into the realm of easy and relevant modern access.

Come and join us!

I've just registered the website www.blogbeckey.com where climbers can post their climbs with Fred Beckey. I climbed with Fred for about 5 years and hosted him many times in my home for slideshows, etc. I've encouraged Fred to write his biography but he won't so let's write it for him. I've posted a few test-posts and one climb which will eventually build a continuous timeline. Send comments/feedback with the contact button and we'll make this easy and fun. On belay!

Can I get extra guacamole with my NACHAs?

More seriously, I might just be able to give you something for your project when you're over here tonight.

Make sure to start a dedicated Fred thread.

Fortunately, Fred has done an uncommonly good job of documenting his activities.

Like leaving a Beckey route that's 5.9 A2 on almost every major alpine formation in North America? Dude's legend.

Like David, I like NACHAs with gwok. Congrats on this Steve. All the best for it to be around a century from now.

Congratulations!

I'll have a few things to contribute.

I finally found Frank's climbing gear when I moved.

Good work Steve.

Something to get behind.

Are we talking the dawn of technical climbing through modern efforts?
