Freddie Wilkinson is an adventure writer known for his original and substantive style. 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 (2010). His writing has appeared in Men’s Journal, National Geographic, Outside, The New York Times, Alpinist, Rock and Ice, and online at the Huffington Post. Wilkinson has also written and co-directed two documentary films, The Old Breed (2012), which won awards from the Kendall Mountain Festival and the Boulder Adventure Film Festival, and the upcoming The Sanctity of Space (2014).

From the teahouses of Khumbu Himal to obscure glaciers of the Alaska Range to storm-lashed Patagonian spires, Wilkinson is an alpinist 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. Wilkinson has been a member of the Mountain Hardwear Athlete Team since 2008 and is supported by Clif Bar, Julbo, La Sportiva, Petzl, and Sterling Rope.

Wilkinson lives in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, where he is a partner at Cathedral Mountain Guides and frequently lectures on adventure topics.
