Lynn Hill
Lynn Hill is a living legend. Few have accomplished an athletic feat more than a decade before anyone else - man or woman. In 1994, Lynn changed the definition of what is possible in rock climbing with her first free ascent of the most famous big wall climb in the world called The Nose on El Capitan in Yosemite Valley, California. To this day fewer than five people have free climbed the iconic route. Over her career, she has won more than 30 international competitions, including five times at the Arco Rock Master, the Wimbledon of competitive climbing. Recognized as one of the best climbers of all time, she has been a guest at the White House and has stared in numerous films, books and TV shows.

Tommy Caldwell
Tommy Caldwell's dad 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 13 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 by his first free ascent of Dawn Wall in January of 2015, and his first ascent of the Fitz Traverse in Patagonia in February of 2014.
