‘Dirtbag’ is addressed to one who discards all the social norms and even jobs to live as a nomad. So the legendary maverick Fred Becky is a true ‘Dirtbag’, as he lived only for climbing without family, friends or a job until he passed away in 2017 at the age of 94. You might nod your head and be fascinated by the charm of the original ‘Dirtbag’ as you watch his life full of pure passion for climbing, innocently refusing secular social norms, as well as expedient and easy ways.
