Bio

"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."

 
Tommy 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.

La Sportiva designed with him the TC Pro, one of the most successfull shoes in climbing history.
