Mountain climbing in the Crimea. Scene opens showing new blooms on a tree, framing the slopes of a Crimean moutain covered with small trees and shrubs. A column of people is seen wending their way through the area. A group of young persons stand side-by-side in a line at the base of a rocky upslope, apparently being addressed by mountain guides. Closeup of the rock climbers, including a woman. Some carry rope looped over their shoulders. A climber stands between two rock formations, grasps a rope and begins free climbing the rock. Closeup shows the safety rope fastened under his arms and tied at his back. Closeup of his feet as he makes his way. View of him quite far up the tall rock face. Below, other climbers shield their eyes from the sun as they watch his progress. View from the top of this section of mountain, as the climber hauls himself up over the ledge. Another view of those watching from below. Next, the climber is seen rappelling down the sheer rock face using his rope to control his descent. Camera focuses on two climbers standing atop peaks of the mountain. One throws a coil of rope across to another. A climber on a peak with suspended from rope line stretched taut across open space. The town of Alupka is below, and the Black Sea in the background. The climber rides the taut line (zip-line) across to the other peak, where other await him.
