Mt. Colby kisses the heavens, a kind friend to skilled mountaineers and a dreadful foe to those unskilled who dare challenge her. This geological marvel surrenders her treasures unwillingly at times. The yearly statics of broken bones and bodies prove this fact; a sullen testimony to the benevolence or the malevolence of the shale monolith that blocks out the morning sun in the Eastern sky.
Two novice climbers, brothers Lawson and Edward McCaffrey, plan a week-end trek to conquer the summit of Mt Colby. One brother climbs to discover his future while the other climbs to reconnect with his past.
How will their challenge end? Will each soul reach his dream or become yet another statistic of death and sorrow?
