Estes Park and its mountainous surroundings inspire so many people in so many ways. In our new “Estes Inspired” video series, we explore this phenomena with locals and visitors whose time here changed them. In our first episode, we kick off with professional climber Tommy Caldwell who says his time growing up in Estes instilled in him the grit to climb Yosemite’s Dawn Wall, the motivation to instill a love of wild spaces in his children, and the passion to find ways to fight for the environment.
