Mo Lehrnman is a prototypical rock climber: fearless, wildly spontaneous, and filled with marvelous stories of triumph and near misses. His best friend, Ray Connelly, is everything Mo's not. But when Ray "borrows" Mo's tales for a book, the pair take their struggle to the beauty of Yosemite's El Capitan, the crown jewel of rock climbing. An amusing look at the high-altitude world of twentysomething climbers, Daniel Duane's Looking for Mo delights readers with its majestic description of Yosemite and a friendship saved by carabiners and ropes.
