Tommy Caldwell's life has been anything but boring. Not only is he one of the world's elite mountain climbers, but he's also been a hostage in Kyrgyzstan and lost an index finger along the way. Eventually, he had his sights set on El Capitan mountain in Yosemite National Park and climbing "The Dawn Wall."
