Evergreen is a born climber, always looking for a challenge, never in less-than-top shape, and ready to tackle anything. Fourleaf...is not. But, if she can become the first earth pony to summit Mt. Violet, influence, fame, and - more importantly - wealth, will be all hers. You can't open up a dream business without any cash, right?
As Fourleaf will find out, though, as she steps in as the third and most vital member of Evergreen's climbing team, that Mt. Violet is no easy feat. Not only the tallest around, but also the most dangerous. Out of the few ponies who ascend, even fewer come down. Excluding the fact that a cutthroat competition has got everypony and anypony on edge for winning.
Love, friendship, betrayal, fury, tragedy, and outright danger await the earth pony on the mountaintop. Does she have what it takes to scale High Violet? Better yet, does she have what it takes to return?
