There is a dying breed in our midst...the Dirtbag Climber. Climbing has a rich history of heroic characters who push the sport by living on next to nothing in their cars or even in caves. In this lighthearted short film, Cedar Wright who spent his twenties as a 'full time Dirtbag' living between Joshua Tree and Yosemite, introduces us to James Lucas, one of an increasingly small number of people who are living the Dirtbag lifestyle. Cedar catches up with James in Indian Creek where they talk about the the cultural, social, and practical reasons that there are fewer and fewer people living as Dirtbags.
This Guy Is the Last of a Dying Breed of Climber | Cedar Wright Climbing Reels, ep. 5
For Cedar Wright, climbing is life. His dedication and passion for his sport, combined with pure hard work, means he is now able to travel the world as a pro rock climber and filmmaker full time. While compiling this Reel, Cedar says he was 'struck by how lucky he has been to travel the world and to shoot some of the world's best climbers on beautiful climbs' and was motivated to provide a 'little entertainment and inspiation for the community that has given me a career and a beautiful life'. In his new series for EpicTV, 'Cedar Wright Climbing Reels', the man himself introduces us to a short mashup of some of his favourite moments such as the first ascent of Liberty Cap in Yosemite. This is a celebration of a life well lived.
