Mesa Rim is stoked to present Dirtbag: The Legend of Fred Beckey at the beautiful Joan & Irwin Jacobs Theater in Balboa Park! Join us in celebrating the incredible pioneer who paved the way for all of us outdoor enthusiasts and wild adventurers. In partnership with American Alpine Club's San Diego Chapter and The Allied Climbers of San Diego, we ensure a night of belly laughs and amazing story-telling.  About the Film: Fred Beckey, the quintessential American dirtbag climber, has evoked mystery, admiration and even harsh criticism since the 1940s. Beckey’s stubborn, singular quest to conquer mountain peaks across the nation meant a solitary life on the road.
