No one perfects a kick-turn or learns to lead climb on their own. It’s through the guidance, support and passion of the entire outdoor community that we plan our route and unite over our common love of the outdoors.
At POW, we rely on the outdoor community too. We rely on that same guidance, support and passion from athletes, scientists, creatives and forward-thinking business leaders to help protect the places we love.
We call them our Alliance — it’s going to take all of their efforts, and yours, to solve the climate crisis.
Tommy Caldwell resides in Estes Park, Colorado, with his wife Becca, son Fitz and daughter Ingred. He was raised by an adventurous father and mountain guide who taught him to embrace fear and doubt and turn them into inspiration. Given this attitude, Tommy has established some of the hardest routes in the country and free climbed 12 routes on El Capitan in Yosemite.
He believes difficult journeys, with little chance for success, teach him the most. This attitude is no better exemplified than by his first free ascent of the Dawn Wall in January of 2015, and his first ascent of the Fitz Traverse in Patagonia in February of 2014.
“I go into the mountains each day as a way to explore limits and self and to increase my love for the world we live in.”
