BendFilm brings you the amazing story of one of the most influential climbers of all time, Fred Beckey is the original American “Dirtbag” — one who abandons societal norms and material comforts in pursuit of a nomadic mountaineering lifestyle. This rebel athlete’s lifetime of accomplishments set the bar for the entire sport. He shattered records with an unparalleled string of superhuman first ascents, bushwacking trails and pioneering direct routes previously thought impassable.
The appeal of this film — 10 years in the making — reaches far beyond the climbing community. Anyone who is passionate about a sport will be inspired by this masterful portrait of an eccentric genius.
