An unconquered peak defies the mountaineer, and he loses his life. His son is equally adventurous, but promises his mother he will not attempt the same perilous climb. His energetic sweetheart hears that strangers are about to ascend, and announces that she will forestall them. This she does, but is in deadly peril. The mother releases her son from his promise and he not only saves the woman he loves but reaches the summit of the peak.
