Dirtbag: The Legend of Fred Beckey

**May 15th Update**

Hailed as one of the most prolific, influential climbers of all time, Fred Beckey is the original American Dirtbag climber whose name has evoked mystery, adulation and vitriol since the 1940s. Beckeys stubborn, singular quest to conquer peaks meant a solitary life on the road, where he left a long trail of scorned climbing partners and lost lovers in his wake.

Throughout the 20th Century, Freds accomplishments exceeded anyone in the sport. He shattered records with an unparalleled string of superhuman first ascents, bushwhacking trails and pioneering direct routes thought previously impassable. He eschewed fame, sponsors, family life and the politics of the industry so his only obligation would remain conquering the next summit. Freds individualistic attitude led to him being passed over when the first American climbing team formed to summit Mount Everest in 1963, but the exclusion only drove Beckey to seek more summits, and he continued climbing until he passed away on October 30, 2017 at the age of 94.

The groundbreaking life story of this rebel athlete, who inspired generations with his monumental first ascents, eloquent books and the lifestyle he fearlessly pioneered, is told for the  first time in this exclusive documentary film. There is only one Fred Beckey. His legacy in the mountains will live on forever.
