  Marmot Signs Beth Rodden and Tommy Caldwell


Marmot announced it has signed both Beth Rodden and Tommy Caldwell each to a long-term endorsement and design contract for the full range of its products, including sportswear. Beth and Tommy will work directly with Marmot as members of the Marmot Design Team in developing and testing in-line and forward-concept products. Also, both Tommy and Beth will introduce their own signature collection of Marmot sportswear for spring, 2006.

Beth and Tommy individually established impressive climbing resumes before they began climbing together. Beth has established big wall free routes in Madagascar and Yosemite, and continues to push the level of women's free climbing. Tommy is best known for free ascents of the Salathé Wall in a day, the Dihedral Wall in Yosemite and the redpoint of Flex Luthor, a 5.15a route in Colorado, that "is potentially the hardest route in North America." Todd Skinner described Tommy as "one of the true great spirits in climbing."

Together, Beth and Tommy completed the first free ascent of Lurking Fear on El Cap in Yosemite in 2000. Since then, they have married each other, traveled the world, and established new routes and new friends wherever they visited. Their affiliation with Marmot began nearly six years ago, but only now has formalized as a full line endorsement and design contract.

"We worked with Tommy this year in the development of an ultralight shell jacket - the 8.6 ounce Essence Jacket," said Jim Frazier, VP Design of Marmot. "Now we begin work with both Tommy and Beth in the development of their individual signature collection of Marmot sportswear as well as packs, tents, bags, gloves and the full range of Marmot outerwear. They have such synergy and fun working together on design projects as well as their climbing projects. We've already had a great time and now expect great things."
