Each player guides his team of 3 small climbers up the two foot tall, steep mountain. They place spikes which, along with ledges, are used by climbers to keep hold and scale the mountain. The team's climbers are joined to each other by "rope" (string). Dexterity is important, as players use a rod to hook and lift climbers, one at a time, onto the spikes and ledges. The winner is the first player to get one climber to reach the summit.
