Alpine climbing has changed a ton in the last 50 years. It’s true, you can look it up.
But though the sport has evolved, there are routes that stand the test of time.
Routes like the Beckey Chouinard in the Bugaboos of British Columbia.
With 22 pitches, snow, ice and all the rock you can stand, climbing this route is just as remote, improbable and adventurous as it was when Fred Beckey and Yvon Chouinard first did it 50 years ago.
See for yourself.
