Freddie has received both the Robert Hicks Bates Award from the American Alpine Club (2007) and the Piolet d’Or from the Groupe de Haute Montagne (2012) for his achievements in the mountains. Freddie’s various jobs include writing books, blogs, and articles related to climbing, taking pictures and making movies of people climbing, giving slideshows and talks about climbing adventures he’s done, and — his favorite — working as a climbing instructor and guide in the White Mountains of New Hampshire and western Maine. Whether it’s hiking up the Lion’s Head in stiff winter conditions, scampering up one of the classic moderate multi-pitch rock climbs of Cathedral Ledge, or getting gnarly on advanced mixed terrain, Wilkinson finds perpetual inspiration safely sheparding clients through new climbing experiences. Freddie believes that any adventure is only as good as the stories you bring home.
