Absolutnie kultowy film wspinaczkowy na temat polskiego wspinania w latach 80-tych. Dodajmy do tego, że w filmie pojawia się ówczesna podkrakowska czołówka wspinaczkowa (Korczak, Kurtyka, Marcisz). Uwiecznione zostały wspinaczki na klasykach Podlesic i Krakowa. W drugiej części Wojtek Kurtyka żywcuje Abazego VI.3+ w Dolinie Bolechowickiej.
