Freddie Wilkinson believes that a climbing adventure is only as good as the stories you bring home. Wilkinson grew up in the flatlands of suburban Connecticut and climbed his first mountain –New Hampshire’s Mount Washington – at age thirteen. By age 20, Wilkinson had climbed Denali via the Cassin Ridge and Nepal’s Cholatse via the West Rib. Since then, he has spent three to four months of every year on expeditions around the globe. In between traveling, Wilkinson earned a degree in history from Dartmouth College and worked as a climbing guide in New England and Alaska. In 2007, Wilkinson established new routes on three different mountains on three different continents: Patagonia’s Cerro Poincinot, The Fin in Alaska, and Mount Mahindra in the Indian Himalaya. That’s pretty good – but Wilkinson still considers himself to be better at telling stories than he is a climbing mountains. He lives in Madison New Hampshire with his fiancé Janet Bergman in a 12 x 12 cabin with a view of the White Mountains.
In August 2010, Freddie published his first book, “One Mountain Thousand Summits: The Untold Story of Tragedy and True Heroism on K2″. An insider’s account of one of the deadliest and most controversial tragedies in mountaineering histroy-the 2008 K2 disaster.
