Protect the ocean so it can protect us

Our future is tied to the ocean. Its shared seas connect us through food, culture and sport. The home of amazing, abundant life, it’s also a powerful climate solution. Yet the practice of bottom trawling threatens to destroy this precious resource—bulldozing our ocean floor, undermining small-scale fisheries and deepening the climate crisis. Let's end this destructive practice, starting with an immediate ban in marine protected areas and inshore zones.

The Master’s Apprentice: Yvon Chouinard on Climbing with Fred Beckey

Patagonia  /  January 16, 2012  /  1 Min Read  /  Climbing

In honor of the release of Fred Beckey’s 100 Favorite North American Climbs from Patagonia Books, we recorded a short audio story in which Yvon Chouinard talks about his alpine apprenticeship with sensei Fred Beckey in 1961.

Fred Beckey’s 100 Favorite North American Climbs is available now from patagonia.com and select book sellers. In the book, Fred offers up his characteristic mix of route tips, natural history and climbing lore for his 100 favorite climbs (with honorable mentions of a few more)—it’s the magnum opus of America’s most prolific first ascensionist.
