Remote and baffling except to the most daring climbers, the high peaks are a
world apart where only the most tenacious of living things endure. Forests

to the rigours of cold and wind. Only animals such as the mountain goat and
bighorn sheep are found here. In true-life colour this film presents an
account of life at this specialized level.
