Caldwell in 2015 Tommy Caldwell (born August 11, 1978) is an American rock climber accomplished in sport climbing, hard traditional climbing, big-wall speed climbing, and big-wall free climbing. Caldwell made the first free ascents of several El Capitan routes in Yosemite National Park.

He made the first ascents of some of the hardest sport routes in the U.S., including ''Kryptonite'' with grade of 5.14c/d, and the world's first route, ''Flex Luthor,'' at the Fortress of Solitude, Colorado in 2003. In January 2015, Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson completed the first free climb of the Dawn Wall of El Capitan. At the time, their 19-day ascent was considered by some as the hardest successful rock climb in history.

In 2015, ''National Geographic'' called Caldwell "arguably the best all-around rock climber on the planet". Provided by Wikipedia
