Tom Frost's name conjures for us that spirit of the golden age of Yosemite rock climbing, when adventure was in the air and the style of the ascent was what counted. In the early 1960s, Frost made ascents of the Nose, the Salathé Wall, and the North America Wall of El Cap with pioneers Royal Robbins, Chuck Pratt, and Yvon Chouinard. Frost and Chouinard designed much of the climbing hardware that is still in use today, including RURPS, Knifeblades, Lost Arrows, Angles, Bongs, Crack-N-Ups, Stoppers, and Hexentric Nuts. In 1997, Frost ventured back onto El Capitan granite, and also opened FROSTWORKS to once again produce environmentally applicable climbing hardware.
