We can't get enough of Fred Beckey. He's ruthless, irreverent, and the grandfather of dirtbagging. In this video, the likes of Yvon Chouinard and Royal Robbins share their mixed experiences with him, and though he's burned a few bridges, the respect for Beckey is very apparent. Dirtbag: The Legend of Fred Beckey is set to be released in 2017.
