Bio: 

From the teahouses of Nepal to obscure glaciers in Alaska to storm-lashed Patagonian spires, Freddie Wilkinson is a climber known for his infectious energy and original lines of ascent. In 2012, Wilkinson received the prestigious Piolet d’Or for making the first ascent of Saser Kangri II, the second highest unclimbed mountain in the world at the time. His climbing adventures have also been recognized with both the Robert Hicks Bates Award and the Lyman Spitzer Award from the American Alpine Club, the Mugs Stump Award, The McNeil- Nott Award, and a grant from the National Geographic Expeditions Council. 

In between adventures, Freddie makes his home in the hills of New Hampshire where he works as a writer and guide. His in-depth reporting on the 2008 K2 season changed public perception of the tragedy by telling the story through the eyes of the climbing-Sherpas, and resulted in the narrative non-fiction book One Mountain Thousand Summits (NAL/Penguin). His writing has appeared in Men’s Journal, Outside, The New York Times, Alpinist, Rock and Ice, and online at the Huffington Post. Wilkinson has also written and co-directed multiple short documentaries, including Life Coach (2017), Denali’s Raven (2017), and The Old Breed (2012). 

Through Cathedral Mountain Guides and Salt Pump Climbing Company, Freddie works hard on a daily basis to introduce people of all stripes to the fun of climbing.

The Co-op is actively seeking to raise start up funds for the project. Want to know more? 

Mount Washington Valley Climber’s Cooperative’s (MWVCC) mission is to provide a space for indoor climbing, training, and community building by and for climbers in the Mount Washington Valley.

Vision:

  1. Become the primary indoor bouldering gym for Bartlett, Jackson, Conway, Madison, Eaton, Ossippi, and Tamworth, and Fryeburg.

  2. Provide a space for developing a stronger bond among the climbers in the Mount Washington Valley.

  3. Provide an indoor climbing facility that is open year round, easily accessible, welcoming, inclusive, fun, and that benefits climbers in the MWV and surrounding areas.

What is a Cooperative?

Coop’s are enterprises owned by their consumers and managed democratically which aim at fulfilling the needs and aspirations of their members. They operate within the market system, independently of the state, as a form of mutual aid, oriented toward service rather than profit.
