Valhalla Pure Outfitters, in partnership with Crag X Climbing Gym and CASBC, is stoked to be bringing this film to the southern Vancouver Island community. Come join us as we celebrate the life of a climbing legend as we host a viewing of the new biopic of Fred Beckey and raise funds for Climbers Access Society British Columbia!

We have plenty of fantastic door prizes and givaways from VPO, Crag X, Petzl, and more!

Fred Beckey is the original American “Dirtbag” climber whose name has evoked mystery, adulation and vitriol since the 1940s. Beckey’s stubborn, singular quest to conquer peaks meant a solitary life on the road, where he left a long trail of scorned climbing partners and lost lovers in his wake.

The groundbreaking life story of this rebel athlete, who inspired generations with his monumental first ascents, eloquent books and the lifestyle he fearlessly pioneered, is told for the first time in this exclusive documentary film. There is only one Fred Beckey. His legacy in the mountains will live on forever.
