Dirtbag: The Legend Of Fred Beckey

USA | 2017 | 96 min | R

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.


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.


Director: Dave O’Leske
Cast: Fred Beckey, Conrad Anker, Helmy Beckey
