Brendan Leonard is a writer, adventurer, climber, speaker and a recovering alcoholic. His book Sixty Meters to Anywhere tells Leonard's painfully honest story of substance abuse and his nerve-racking, awkward first years of recovery in the mountains. It wasn’t until he moved to Colorado, three years into sobriety, that he truly fell in love with climbing, and a space where he found freedom and opportunity to become something new. Leonard is a contributing editor at Adventure Journal and a columnist at Outside, and his stories have appeared in Backpacker, National Geographic Adventure, Outside, Men’s Journal, Sierra, Adventure Cyclist, and other publications.
