Hailed as one of the most influential outdoorsmen of all time, Fred Beckey is the original “Dirtbag" climber – one who abandons societal norms and material comforts in pursuit of a nomadic mountaineering lifestyle. Throughout the 20th Century, Beckey’s 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. His dedication to the mountains is unmatched, and Beckey is still defiantly climbing today at age 94! This documentary reveals the untold story of a true American icon.
