The videos are from back in 2005 when Caldwell put up an amazing double climb of both Freerider and El Capitan’s The Nose in the same day. The videos are interesting and fun to watch not only because you can watch a master climber at work, but you can see him as he prepares for the climb, going through his gear, and mentally getting ready as well. He’s also cheered on and encouraged by wife Beth Rodden, who is quite an accomplished climber in her own right.
Very cool videos for anyone into the rock climbing and some of the big, classic walls. Also very impressive to think that Tommy was able to put up both routes in one day, even a few years after the fact. Some days I have problems climbing two flights of stairs! 😉
