When Brendan Leonard moved to the West at age 23, he was a mess. He had a tenuous grip on sobriety, only six months after his last drink had landed him in yet another jail cell. It was the final mistake in a long list that included multiple arrests, wrecked cars, broken bones, fistfights, and ruined relationships. In Montana, he took his first steps into the Rocky Mountains, unwittingly beginning a decade-long obsession with climbing and a journey that would take him all over the West and Europe. Written with unflinching honesty and vulnerability, Sixty Meters to Anywhere is the memoir of a barstool storyteller who left the bar and found adventure, redemption, and a life that almost never happened.

Good book! I'm not a climber but I enjoyed reading Leonard's story of becoming and staying sober by learning how to rock climb. Towards the end of the book he expresses his thoughts that climbing kept him sober because he had to focus on what he was doing and it allowed him to escape his every day problems so pretty much trading one escape for another. Definitely worth the time.
