Widely regarded as the best big-wall free climber of all time, 38-year-old Tommy Caldwell has already had a very full career. After becoming a national climbing champion at 16 and finishing the countryâ€™s then-hardest sport climb â€”Â Flex LuthorÂ â€” at 25, Caldwell established many of Yosemiteâ€™s toughest big-wall routes, and won the highest award in alpinism â€” a Piolet dâ€™Or â€” in 2015. A year later, he pioneered the most difficult big-wall climb in the world, the Dawn Wall. Now heâ€™s putting his life to paper in his new memoir, The Push ($16, Amazon.com).Â We recently talked to Caldwell about life after the Dawn Wall, the future of climbing in America, and his next epic projects.
