On January 14, 2015, Tommy Caldwell, along with his partner, Kevin Jorgeson, summited what is widely regarded as the hardest climb in history - Yosemite’s nearly vertical 3,000-foot Dawn Wall, after 19 days on the route. This engrossing memoir chronicles the journey of a boy with a fanatical mountain-guide father who was determined to instill toughness in his son to a teen whose obsessive nature drove him to the top of the sport-climbing circuit.

I loved it! As an avid climber I loved to hear about all his adventures and the places with the included rawness that he added to the story. Tommy Caldwell was so real and he didn't hold back from telling his story and it made it so personable.
