This piece depicts four mountain-climbers as they compete to climb up the rocky face of a large mountain. As each climber takes a step, pieces of rock fall around them, and their journey becomes more treacherous and intense. Although each person is focused on their own actions, they are connected through a common goal – to reach the top. Likewise, each drummer, while intensely focused on his or her own drumming, is connected through the challenge of playing various patterns in unison.
