After successfully reaching the summit, one of the men is injured and breaks his leg during the descent. When his partner releases him, the crippled climber falls into a crevasse, thought for dead. However, he survives the fall and on one leg, must find a way to make it the base camp or perish in the icy bowels of the mountain. I won't spoil it for anyone out "
