Tommy Caldwell: “The Push: A Climber’s Journey of Endurance, Risk, and […] | Talks at Google

Tommy is one of the world’s greatest athletes, best known for the odds-defying feat of free-climbing the 3,000-foot Dawn Wall on El Capitan. But his memoir is much more than a story about tackling Mother Nature. It’s a tale of adventure and adversity, of love and family and fatherhood, and of navigating whatever challenges life throws at you—even if it’s a giant shard of ice hurtling down a cliff at your head.

Tommy partners closely with the Access Fund, the national advocacy organization that protects America’s climbing. They buy and conserve land; advocate for climbers with land management agencies and officials at the national, state and local level; field professional trail building teams; support over 100 local climbing organizations, and educate the climbing community on best practices for minimizing impacts. Brady Robinson is a climber and has been the executive director of the Access Fund since 2007, and will introduce Tommy.
