Forty-six-year-old Yuji Hirayama is one of the great legends of climbing. Near retirement, he plans one big swan-song mission in the wild, mystical high-altitude jungles of Borneo. But he needs a worthy partner and finds Daniel Woods, a 21-year-old goofball skater kid who is arguably the strongest human being in the climbing world. In a classic story that crosses genres, Daniel-san travels to Japan to compete for the opportunity to work with Mr. Miyagi-like Hirayama.
