    A group of mountaineers climb Mount Etna in Sicily.

  • Description

    Sicily. "To many of us it seems queer that hours of climbing amongst snow are needed to approach the hot crater of Etna." L/S of a group of climbers walking across snow on Mount Etna. High angle shot of the terrain below.

    "The Cameraman needs a good low-gear pair of legs here!" The climbers walk on a very steep part of the mountain. Panning shot of the volcano from high angle. "But, the view of the main crater is well worth that long 10,000 feet climb." High angle views of the crater. Panning shot. "New craters are always forming inside the old one." Panning shot - steam rising from a crater.
