He's been described as the greatest living athlete you've never heard of, but once you hear it you'll never be able to forget Tommy Caldwell's story. In the early 2000s, Tommy was just a young climber on a trip when he and his friends were taken hostage. Then a household accident threatened to end his career forever. Tommy talks about putting his life back together, post traumatic growth, and chasing big dreams.
