Dirtbag - The Legend of Fred Beckey

1h 36m Adventure, Documentary, Biography 2017

Fred Beckey is the original American “Dirtbag” mountaineer, whose name evokes mystery, adulation and vitriol, and this rebel climber’s unparalleled ascents make up an iconic legacy that continues to inspire generations.

Before his passing at the age of 94, Fred entrusted director Dave O’Leske with nearly a century’s worth of his photos, personal journals and rare films. More than just a climbing film, the resulting documentary spans nine decades to show the true story of a reclusive genius who defied societal norms and the need for fame to chart his own singular course in life.
