In this short documentary vignette, members of the Alpine Club of Canada (ACC) display their skill and talk to host Fred Davis about why they climb.

The film take us to a ten-thousand-foot peak in Yoho National Park, a practice slope on Grouse Mountain near Vancouver, and a steep precipice known as Devil’s Leap, providing ample scope for a demonstration of mountain climbing.
