An expedition of three mountain men shows it is still possible to discover a world of vertical granite that nobody has ever seen or climbed before. The gigantic walls rise in a lonely valley in the troubled zone of Kashmir, penetrate this unknown area of splendid mountains and fraternise with the astonished local inhabitants before continuing on their trek across the snow towards Amin Braak. Climbing the "Little Amin Tower", a gigantic wall of granite, creates quite a few problems but the climbers have the satisfaction of conquering a virgin mountain as difficult and challenging as any of the bigger and better known ones.
