Cayley’s Chronicle

Though his experiences in the mountains spread over but a few years, the powerful impressions left by Bev Cayley echo throughout the albums, photographs and poetry he left behind. The greatest tribute to his character was spoken through the actions of his mountain mates. When illness cut Bev’s life short, an expedition was made to the summit of an unclimbed peak so it would bear his name in perpetual memory.
