It is without a doubt the most comfortable surface I have ever slept on. I have totally fallen in love. I can’t thank you enough. My only worry is that it’s going to make me soft 🙂 But I’m betting the improved sleep will just help my recovery and therefore make me stronger.
Bio: Tommy Caldwell
Climbing has been a part of Tommy’s life since the age of 3 when his dad took him up Lumpy Ridge in his hometown of Estes Park, CO to fly his kite from the summit. From there, summer vacations in Yosemite instilled a deep reverence for the huge granite walls. Tommy has put up a handful of big wall first ascents including two El Capitan free climbs in 24 hours.
On January 14th, 2015, after seven years of heroic effort, Tommy’s dream became a reality as he and his climbing partner Kevin Jorgensen completed the first ascent of the Dawn Wall, heralded as the hardest free climb in the sport. In June 2018, Tommy and Alex Honnold scaled El Capitan in Yosemite Valley in under 2 hours – a feat compared to breaking the 4-minute mile.
When not pursuing his passion for big walls, Tommy’s other passion is a 5’3″ sandy blond beauty, his wife, Becca. She is his main road trip partner, occasional belayer, and favorite chef. These days you can often find them exploring Yosemite and sharing their love of climbing with their two young children.
