100 Favorite North American Climbs Hardcover Book by Fred Beckey from Patagonia

Fred Beckey

Fred Beckey is a national, no, international treasure. It was extraordinarily meaningful for Chouinard and Patagonia to support the book and film. These projects are a good start to begin the process of understanding his life and his work. Nice.

ebook - topos too low resolution to be legible

I purchased the ebook edition but was very disappointed due to the ebook publishing quality, not the writing. One of the key features of any climbing book (even a coffee table version like this) are the topos and photos that are included. The versions that are included with the kindle edition are so low resolution that you cannot enlarge and enjoy ... Read Morethe photos at full screen resolution, and the topos are so low resolution that you cannot read the text or make out the symbols, even if you enlarge them as much as possible. Sadly, the e-book versions are worthless. I have tried viewing on iphone, ipad and on-screen computer kindle. I hope patagonia addresses this (by including higher resolution versions of the topos), as it reflects badly on the publisher and does a disservice to Fred's monumental work.

Criteria for inclusion is that he - Fred Beckey- had completed the climb - and not neccesarily with him having made the first ascent. This is his masterpiece. Packed with amusing antecdotes, notes, history, terrific maps, pictures, topos and excellent narative - it&#x27... Read More;s all here. Published by Patagonia, a true labor of love.
