  • Short Summary

    Women mountain climbers in the Rockies of Colorado.

  • Description

    United States of America. Subtitle of story is: "How Young Women of Colorado amuse themselves on Dull Days." Introductory intertitle reads: "The Cameraman said these were the Rockies - he must be right." High angle shot of women mountaineers making their way up a sheer rock face with the aid of ropes. We can just about see the climbers making their way up the mountain.

    "Aspiring to the higher life." Low angle of the girls making their way up to the summit. "He seems to be leading them on." A man leads the way at the front of a group of women climbers. "It takes a lot of pull to get to the top." High angle shot of the climbers - a river runs below them - looks scary! "Two thousand feet up - you can fall out of grace here quicker than anything." Low angle shot of the climbers coming over the top of the mountain. The climbers all hold on to a rope. "But, oh! the scenery!" The girls stand on a rock and look at the view. No good C/Us of the girls.
