Dirtbag- The Legend of Fred Beckey
Hailed as one of the most prolific, influential climbers of all time, Fred Beckeys adventures began in Washingtons North Cascade range with his brother Helmy in the 1930s. In 1942, the Beckey brothers cemented their place in alpine lore when the teenagers survived an incredible second ascent of Mount Waddingtonconsidered the most difficult climb in North America at the time. This success marked the beginning of Freds epic tear of first ascents around the world, during which he became the consummate Dirtbag climber: defined as one who forgoes material comforts and defies societal norms in pursuit of a nomadic mountaineering lifestyle. 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. This 93 minute feature documentary is a must see for any climbing enthusiast!
