Reeling from the loss of his home and family, the author attempts to reclaim his former, youthful self by returning to Yosemite to rock climb full-time after a 28-year hiatus. As he tries to control fear and become the climber he once was, he struggles to understand where his 30-year relationship went wrong. His journey of rediscovery documents the adventurous climbing world of Yosemite Valley and is filled with pain, terror, broken limbs, brushes with death, camaraderie, and hilarious stupidity. The story of his marriage is raw, exposed, and painfully embarrassing. Interweaving a story of decline with one of rejuvenation, the author wrestles with the meaning of weakness, strength, failure, and success.
