Halfway to Heaven

Halfway to Heaven

Fat, forty four, father of three sons, and facing a vasectomy, Mark Obmascik would never have guessed that his next move would be up a 14,000 foot mountain. But when his twelve year old son gets bitten by the climbing bug at summer camp, Obmascik cant resist the opportunity for some high altitude father son bonding by hiking a peak together. After their first joint climb, Obmascik, addled by the thin air, decides to keep his head in the clouds and try to scale all fifty four of Colorados 14,000 foot mountains, known as the Fourteenersand to do it in less than one year. The result is Halfway to Heaven, a rollicking, witty, sometimes harrowing chronicle of an outrageous adventure that is no walk in the park. This hilarious midlife picaresque Publishers Weekly has garnered wide critical acclaim, was named an Editors Pick by Parade, won the 2009 National Outdoor Book Award for Outdoor Literature, and made one reviewer laugh so hard he blew beer out of his nose Colorado Daily. Like the authors critically acclaimed debut, The Big Year, it brings a keen eye and sharp humor to an obsessive subculture: climbers who share the authors crazed passion of scaling all fifty four of the famed and feared Fourteeners.
