Aoi's childhood dream of climbing the tallest mountains in the world was destroyed when the girl fell off a jungle gym, developing a crippling fear of heights in the process. Now in high school, the teen enjoys more mundane activities like knitting and sitting quietly, and has absolutely no interest in risking her life in the wilderness. But Aoi's sheltered life is shattered with the reappearance of Hinata, her boisterous childhood friend who's determined to pull the girl out of her shell and scale some mountains! Together, the two learn about climbing gear and try to face their fears, all while becoming the best of friends!
