DIRTBAG: THE LEGEND OF FRED BECKEY2017, USA, 96 min
Director: Dave O'Leske
Fred Beckey is the typical American “Dirtbag” climber, whose very name evokes mystery, admiration and criticism since 1940. Becky’s to conquer the peaks entailed a solitary life for him leaving in his wake a long trail of despised climbing mates and lovers lost. He passed away in October 2017 at the age of 94, and this film pays tribute to him.
