Join the SLCA and the American Alpine Club for a showing of the film "Dirtbag" hosted by Momentum Millcreek.

Doors open at 6:30 PM
Show starts at 7 PM
Bring your own crazy creek or crash pad, snacks, and beverages.

This is a film about Fred Beckey - the original American “Dirtbag” mountaineer whose name evokes mystery, adulation and vitriol. 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. This rebel climber’s unparalleled ascents make up an iconic legacy that continues to inspire generations.
