Where have all the dirtbags gone? James Lucas is part of a fading generation of full-time dirtbag climbers in the U.S. Inspired by John Long’s books, he has been living the dirtbag life since 2011, sleeping in his Saturn and making ends meet by free-lance writing
(often for Rock and Ice). In this video, he speculates why the dirtbag climber is a dying breed.
James Lucas is taking over the Rock and Ice Instagram feed this week, bringing us climbing shots from around the world. Follow Rock and Ice on Instagram @rockandicemag to check out his photos!
