The recent world expedition of the french mountaineer Christine Janin touches five continents. Between one plane and another, one city and another, the woman climbs the slopes of Kilimanjaro, reaches the summit of Mckinley in Alaska, Aconcagua in south America, Elbrouz in Caucasus and then climbs Mt. Carstensz in New Guinea. The long journey ends in Antartico.
