Legendary American rock climber Tommy Caldwell joins us in Banff to share his latest accomplishment – a newly published memoir The Push: A Climber’s Journey of Endurance, Risk, and Going beyond Limits. The memoir was fine-tuned at Banff Centre under a Paul D. Fleck Fellowship in 2016. Caldwell was a 2014 National Geographic Adventurer of the Year and is a recipient of the Piolet d’Or, along with Alex Honnold, for their completion of the Fitz Traverse in Patagonia.
