I've been reading Luke Mehall's work since he was a college student, and will say the same thing now I told him then: I don't know anyone who writes with more enthusiasm, joy and honesty about a life that ranges from pearl diving in restaurant kitchen sinks all winter, to climbing the big walls and spires of North America all summer and fall. His fascination and appreciation at just being alive on the planet make me think of Kerouac on a good day.

Climbing Out of Bed captures the life, love and laughs experienced by a climber who lives an extraordinary life of his own design. It takes little time with Luke to realize his restless, inspired energy is contagious and permeates his whole life and those around him; and it most certainly carries through in his writing as well. You never know where he’ll pop up next and what stories he’ll have to share—but one thing’s for sure—this whacked-out world could use a few more good souls like Luke Mehall.
