Fred Beckey, the quintessential American dirtbag climber, has evoked mystery, adulation and vitriol since the 1940s. Beckey’s stubborn, singular quest to conquer mountain peaks across the nation meant a solitary life on the road. The groundbreaking life story of this rebel athlete who inspired generations with his monumental first ascents, eloquent writing, and pioneer lifestyle is told for the first time in this exclusive documentary film that will be released on Netflix this summer. The WAC is hosting a private viewing followed by a question-and-answer session hosted by some of the film’s producers. Appetizers included.
