Fred Beckey is the original American “Dirtbag” climber whose name has evoked mystery, adulation and vitriol since the 1940s. Beckey’s 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.

Fred Beckey passed away peacefully on October 30, 2017. Fred was a true American icon.

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.

DIRTBAG: THE LEGEND OF FRED BECKEY played more than 25 film festivals in 2017, winning 13 awards including five Grand Prizes and two Audience Awards. The film is now playing on an independent screening tour in select cities before releasing via Film Sales Company later in 2018.
