Tommy Caldwell on Life After the Dawn Wall

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 country’s then-hardest sport climb — Flex Luthor — at 25, Caldwell established many of Yosemite’s toughest big-wall routes, and won the highest award in alpinism — a Piolet d’Or — in 2015. A year later, he pioneered the most difficult big-wall climb in the world, the Dawn Wall. Now he’s putting his life to paper in his new memoir, The Push ($16, Amazon.com). We recently talked to Caldwell about life after the Dawn Wall, the future of climbing in America, and his next epic projects.
