The recreation of a mountain rescue on a vertical rock face in the Mont Blanc Massif. From the Couvercle Hutt, an accident is reported to the rescue service in Chamonix. Immediately a rescue team is organized. A Civil Protection helicopter sees the two climbers in difficulty and injured. After a night spent in the Couvercle shelter, rescuers, heavily loaded, go to the scene of the accident. They must climb to the top and then descend to the height of the climbers. A man rappels and returns the most seriously injured on his back. The descent is difficult. A cable car must be improvised to transport the injured man to the glacier.
