Summary of Yama no Susume

As a child, Aoi Yukimura loved mountains and was passionate about climbing. However, an accident at the playground left her afraid of heights and turned to her indoor hobbies. Unfortunately, Aoi is now a shy high school freshman and has become so absorbed in these hobbies that she can barely associate with others, leaving them practically without friends. Only when he meets the lively Hinata Kuraue, an old friend from his climbing days, does something change.

Impulsive and lively, Hinata insists that Aoi accompany her in all types of climbing activities. Although initially cautious, Aoi quickly realizes that her time with Hinata brings back fond memories of her childhood and she soon decides to start climbing again. As the return to her previous hobby begins to rip her out of her shell, Aoi makes close friends, takes on new challenges, and continues to find her own breath to climb.
