Tommy Caldwell (born August 11, 1978) is an American rock climber. He is accomplished in sport climbing, hard traditional climbing, big-wall speed climbing and big-wall free climbing. Caldwell made the first free ascents (FFA) of a handful of El Capitan routes in Yosemite National Park.

He made the first ascents (FA) of some of the United States' hardest sport routes (as of 2008) including Kryptonite (5.14c/d) and Flex Luthor (5.15a) at the Fortress of Solitude, Colorado. In January 2015, Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson completed the first free climb of the Dawn Wall of El Capitan. The 19-day ascent of the Dawn Wall is considered by some as the hardest successful rock climb in history.

In 2015, National Geographic called Caldwell "arguably the best all-around rock climber on the planet." - Wikipedia
