Like pushing the pedal to the metal down the Pacific Coast Highway vibez. Like looking over at the person behind the wheel and realizing it’s OK to cede control and take your own hands off the proverbial wheel… for now.”

5. TOMMY CALDWELL

 

After a seven-year quest of finding a way to free climb the steepest, blankest face of the monolithic El Capitan, Tommy Caldwell, and partner Kevin Jorgeson, stood atop The Dawn Wall with the world watching.

Tommy was named one of National Geographic’s 2014 “Adventurers of the Year.”
