Tommy Caldwell is a big-wall free climber who stands on top of his chosen profession. In 2015, he completed the first-ever free climb of the Dawn Wall at El Capitan. This 3,000 foot ascent is considered to be hardest climb of its type in the world. He’s the author of the NYT bestseller The Push: A Climber’s Search for the Path, a survivor of an armed militant group kidnapping, and a guy with tremendous insight into what it takes to overcome adversity.
Get this; Tommy lost a finger in an accident and still managed to climb the Dawn Wall. That’s grit and determination at the highest (pun intended) level. Tommy joins Patrick in the ‘lab’ to discuss what it means to lead yourself and to be a member of a winning team.
