Remembering Climbing Legend Tom Frost


What do the CIA, an outdoor clothing company, and a Yosemite campsite all have in common? Tom Frost.

Famous in climbing circles for his remarkable humility, Frost is one of the lesser-known legends of the rock climbing world—as well as a photographer, conservationist, and inspiration to generations of outdoor enthusiasts. He was also a complicated and passionate man whose story hasn’t really been told—until now.

Today’s podcast guests are Tom Seawell and Craig Flax, two of the filmmakers behind a feature-length documentary film about Frost. Alta is a sponsor of this upcoming film, and we feature a look at Frost’s efforts to preserve a beloved Yosemite campground in our Fall 2019 issue.
