Vertical World presents DIRTBAG: THE LEGEND OF FRED BECKEY with the American Alpine Club

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

Tickets are limited and are $10 online and $12 at the door.

Beer from Georgetown Brewing will be provided.

Our goals are to meet other people to tour with, try out new gear and raise money to support the Northwest Avalanche Center.

Warning: Splitboarding is an inherently dangerous and hazardous sport and can result in serious injury or death. Attendees take full responsibility for learning proper backcountry travel and avalanche safety. Stay safe out there. Ride with a buddy, take a beacon, shovel and probe AND know how to use them.
