Hailed as 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, bushwhacking trails and pioneering direct routes thought previously impassable.

Beckey burned bridges, eschewed fame and stayed unencumbered so his only obligation would remain conquering the next summit. He kept meticulous personal journals where he mused on everything from arcane geology to his romantic life, to the myriad sunrises he witnessed from vantages not seen by anyone else on Earth. An environmentalist before there was such a term, Beckey's legacy includes 13 essential books that act as blueprints for new generations.

Fred Beckey defiantly continued climbing until passing away in October 2017 at age 94.
