Meet Timmy

Timmy O'Neill is a professional rock climber, first ascensionist and public speaker. Following early speed ascents of Yosemite's 3,000 foot El Capitan, O’Neill has dedicated his time to a life of international exploration and giving back through ‘adventure impact’ - the combination of outdoor adventure and social impact.  



Recounting stories from his decades of cutting edge expeditions, Timmy’s dynamic storytelling engages and inspires the listener. O’Neill combines his daring adventures with social impact to share the wisdom and unique perspective gleaned from a life lived on the edge of wild landscapes.

"Through wit, humor and just pure high energy Timmy can engage a crowd like no other on this planet. He is simply the best there is."  - Ken Yager, founder and CEO of the Yosemite Climbing Association
