Evening talk with Tommy Caldwell and Sonnie Trotter at MEC Vancouver

The legend is back. Join MEC, Edelrid, Tommy Caldwell and Sonnie Trotter to chat about climbing access, climate advocacy, and adventures.

Expect another sold-out show with stories, drinks from local sponsors, community groups and epic prizes – all hosted by MEC Ambassadors Sean McColl and Emma Contaoe.

You’ll hear stories of Tommy and Sonnie’s time climbing together as youngsters, establishing routes together on Mount Louis in Canada, and Sonnie’s biggest project to date: a first ascent in Yosemite he’s calling Pineapple Express, with support from Tommy. They’ll chat about everything from life as dirtbag climbers to husbands and dads to activists and environmentalists – and all the stuff in between.

Tickets go on sale on April 13 at 9:00 am PT.
