Tom Randall Talks About His Climbing Obsession

Tom Randall is a modern day institution in the world of British climbing. Well known for his acquired taste for off-width crack routes, Randall consistently sets himself the highest standards and the hardest lines. For Randall, climbing is all-consuming, but this hasn’t always been the case. “In all truth, my climbing sits at this slightly higher level in terms of the burning desire of what happens when I get up in the morning,” said Randall. “I constantly feel guilty about it. But I do recognize who and what I am.”

In Obsession, Randall provides a unique insight into his formative years spent in a world entirely different to the one we associate him with now and how he copes with conflicting priorities that are fundamental to his continued happiness and ambitious drive.
