Event Description


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. There is only one Fred Beckey. His legacy in the mountains will live on forever.

Brought to you by the So Cal Mountaineering Association, UC San Diego Recreation-Outback Adventures and University Centers.
