Fred is at the forefront of an exciting new breed of ice and mixed climber. He has taken his competition experience of dry tooling into the high mountains and achieved ambitious new routes previously thought of as impossible.
He is successfully opening difficult new lines on summits around the world, as well as envisaging and climbing bold new routes on alpine peaks. These achievements have seen Fred included twice in recent years, in the Piolet d’Or long list.
