An original and daring climb in the Dolomites. The documentary tells the acrobatic crossing from the standing Campanile Misurina to the impressive spire named Guglia de Amicis by a hanging rope, completed by Tita Piaz and Bernhard Trier in 1906. Then we see two climbers climbing the rock spire from the bottom and finally doing an exciting rappel from the top. At the beginning of the film there is the re-enactment of the figure of Edmondo de Amicis, the italian novelist, who also wrote memorable pages about mountains.
