This is a short video for bluewaterropes.blogspot.com that gives you a peak into the climbing legend's training regimen, and philosophy on the climbing life. I attempted to keep up with Tommy for a typical training day and was sore for a week!!! Tommy is arguably the best bigwall freeclimber in the world, but what sets him apart is his down to earth happy go lucky nature and fun loving demeanor. Tommy is training for a free ascent of Mescalito on El Capitan which if he can pull it off, will be in my opinion, the hardest bigwall free climb in the world. With his hard core training regimen and complete dedication to the task at hand...if any one can do it...Tommy can.■A Day in the Life of Conrad Anker
